One-stop shop: DRA – FAT – SAT Service for machine compliance

Design risk assessment (DRA) - factory acceptance test (FAT) and site acceptance test (SAT)

Machine compliance and acceptance

When designing, manufacturing and supplying plant and machinery there are various legal and normative requirements underlying the key phases. That's why at these moments it is absolutely essential to ensure conformity with the legal requirements, before the plant/machinery is transferred to the next phase.

Legal provisions vary from country to country, or even from region to region. Whether you're a machine manufacturer or operator, Pilz can help you implement laws, directives and standards worldwide.

We ensure that your machines meet the respective legal requirements in all key phases.

Your requirements

You have to meet a variety of legal requirements

As a machine operator you import machinery from all over the world and so are confronted with complex health and safety requirements when you install machines in your plant.
As a machine manufacturer you want to supply to regions with different legal requirements and so need to consider the conformity requirements in all phases of engineering, even before your machine is designed.

Want to be sure that you meet the conformity requirements of a specific country or region?

Want to import or export plant or machinery and need a service partner to help you interpret the applicable directives and standards? We’d be happy to support you during the whole DRA-FAT-SAT process.
