Control Panels for Machinery
Electrical equipment, including control equipment for machinery, is required to comply with the Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations. If the electrical equipment complies with an appropriated standard, there is a presumption that it meets the principal safety objectives.
The appropriate standard for control equipment for machinery is EN 60204-1 in the EU or BS EN 60204-1 in the UK.
There are specific requirements for the manufacturer of electrical products, including affixing the CE Mark for the EU or the UKCA Mark for the UK and the drawing up of a Declaration of Conformity. However, if an electrical control panel is specifically designed for the control of machinery it falls under the Essential Health & Safety Requirements (ESHR’s) for machinery and is therefore compliance is included in the Declaration of Conformity for the machinery.
