Basis of CE Marking

Order number 1T000041 | Advanced | International


The CE marking process describes the procedure for the certification of products in accordance with the specifications in the European Economic Area. At the end of the process, application of the CE label documents that all mandatory safety requirements in accordance with Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC are met. Here you will be introduced to the issues concerning the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC and your requirements with regard to CE marking of machines. Which machines fall under the scope of the Machinery Directive? What are the responsibilities of machine builders (manufacturers) and machine operators (employers)? This training course will provide answers to these questions, which arise in conjunction with the engineering, acquisition and commissioning of new and existing machinery. Furthermore, you will get an insight into the associated standards for the design and construction of machines placed on the market and operated within the European Economic Area. The training will take you step by step through the necessary processes for CE marking of machinery. Together with the experiences from the practical exercises on a 3D machine model, after the training you will be even better at assessing the status of your machines and ensuring their conformity.
