Understand How the "New" Machinery Directive Impacts Your EU Exports
As U.S. OEM's and system integrators look to grow their sales through exports, they need to ensure conformity to the safety regulations of the importing country(s). Nowhere is this more important than when exporting to the lucrative European market.
Nearly half of all U.S. exports of goods that are going to Europe are required to have a conformity mark certification. As a result, it is imperative you understand the new, significant updates of the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC, the cornerstone of equipment safety for Europe, which became mandatory on December 29, 2009. In particular learn how the safety declaration of conformity impacts a product getting the CE mark for the European Market.
