Article Assembly of machinery - Annex 1 of machinery directive 2006/42/EC

The text in RED color is the amended or added text in comparison with the former 98/37/EC machinery directive. Assembly of machinery

In the case of machinery or parts of machinery designed to work together, the machinery must be designed and constructed in such a way that the stop controls, including the emergency stop devices, can stop not only the machinery itself but also all related equipment, if its continued operation may be dangerous.


The text of the former Machinery Directive mentioned complex installations without defining machines or installations that were under the scope of this requirement.

Original Comment:

Le texte de l’ancienne directive machines mentionnait installations complexes sans toutefois définir les machines ou installations qui étaient couvertes par l’exigence.
