Supply of “Complete” Machinery.
Machines that are being placed on the market and put into
service in the UK and Europe are required to have a “Declaration of Conformity”
and a “compliance marking”.
Since the event of BREXIT, in the United Kingdom this is
required under the UK Machinery
(Safety) Regulations and requires a
of Conformity” and a UKCA Mark.
In the European Union this is required under the EU
Machinery Directive and requires a
of Conformity” and a CE Mark.
Since BREXIT this is required for “imports” of machinery from
the UK to the EU and the UK supplier must have representation (a named person) based
in the EU to take care of some
of the manufacturer’s responsibilities.
In both cases compliance applies to machines that are new (including
machines that have been built “in-house” use) or where they have been extensively
modified or undergone a significant change of purpose.
It is important to note that “second hand” machinery being transferred
between the UK & EU (& visa versa) is now regarded as “New” and, therefore,
are required to have appropriate “Declarations of Conformity” and “compliance
markings” as required by their status.
Health and Safety Compliance Engineering objective is to guide
you through your obligations for the supply and use of machinery, whether it be
to the United Kingdom, the European Union or else ware, Worldwide.
