CE marking

What is to be considered when, for a defined period, a plant is to be constructed of different modules for experimental purposes?

To guarantee machinery safety, the Machinery Directive (MD) shall fundamentally apply also in this case. Having said that, Article 1 (2) h) of the MD states that machinery specially designed and constructed for research purposes for temporary use in laboratories is excluded from the scope of the directive.

However, for machinery safety it is necessary to comply with the minimum requirements of the industrial safety regulations (BetrSichV) and all other national rules and regulations.
