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

Article 13 : Procedure for partly completed machinery

1. The manufacturer of partly completed machinery or his authorised representative shall, before placing it on the market, ensure that:

(a) the relevant technical documentation described in Annex VII, part B is prepared;

(b) assembly instructions described in Annex VI are prepared;

(c) a declaration of incorporation described in Annex II, part 1, Section B has been drawn up.

2. The assembly instructions and the declaration of incorporation shall accompany the partly completed machinery until it is incorporated into the final machinery and shall then form part of the technical file for that machinery.


partly completed machinery have their own certification process in which three documents are required:

  • technical documentation (technical file),
  • assembly instructions,
  • the declaration of incorporation.

Two documents become part of the technical file of the final machine.

Original Comment:

Les quasi machines possèdent leur propre procédure de certification dans laquelle 3 documents sont exigés :

  • documentation technique (le dossier technique),
  • la notice d'assemblage,
  • la déclaration d'incorporation.

Deux des documents font alors partie du dossier technique de la machine finale.
