With effect from 20.07.2011, the European Commission has published a new edition of the Official Journal for the Machinery Directive. The content of the Official Journal is a current list of the standards harmonised under the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC and their reference data.
"Presumption of conformity" - Users act in compliance with the law and directives
Following publication in the EU Official Journal, these standards are regarded as harmonised, triggering "presumption of conformity". Users applying these standards can therefore assume that they are acting in compliance with the law and directives. The burden of proof has therefore been reversed in the event of a claim.
This new list replaces the previous list from Spring 2011 and was distributed under the number 2011/C 214/01.
