Machinery Directives at a Glance

Pilz have produced a poster of the guidelines associated with the Machinery Directive, the main legislation governing health and safety requirements for machines across Europe.

Setting the criteria for a safe machine, the Machinery Directive (MD) is supported by the following group of European harmonised standards:

  • A-type standards specify basic concepts, terminology and design principles applicable to all categories of machinery
  • B-type standards deal with specific aspects of machinery safety or specific types of safeguard that can be used across a wide range of categories of machinery
  • C-type standards provide specifications for a given category of machinery.

The new poster, entitled “Safeguards for plant and machinery", offers a quick overview of the finer details of the standards, whilst providing Pilz-specific solutions to aid machinery manufacturers.
