The compulsory CE marking on machinery opens the doors of Europe to you.

In exchange for this the European regulations lay certain obligations on you. The CE marking on machinery indicates conformity with all applicable European directives (or with their transposition into national law) that require such marking. Logically it is the Machinery Directive that contains the most specific requirements for machinery. Nevertheless conformity with the Machinery Directive is not necessarily sufficient and for many machines other directives wil also have to be followed. So particularly when one first becomes acquainted with this issue the situation can come over as reasonably complex. Our intention is in short, in a practical and straightforward way, to set out the various steps that are necessary in order to place on the market or put into service a machine in Europe.
