Machine Safety Risk Assessments
CE Marking of Process Equipment
Although suppliers are responsible for CE Marking of equipment they supply under the Supply of Machinery (Safety) Regulations 2008, this is a complex area with often conflicting requirements between the various regulations and directives. R B Plant have helped many clients to navigate through this legislative minefield ensuring that CE marked equipment complies with all relevant legislation. This includes CE marking of complex ATEX equipment.
One of the pitfalls that can cause a project to be delayed is when a machinery supplier fails to issue a Declaration of Conformity in a timely manner. Without this the user is unable to put the equipment into service until the Certificate of Incorporation has been completed. Our team have helped numerous clients overcome this hurdle by carrying out the relevant risk and conformity assessments not only to attain incorporation but also ensure that the machinery passes essential safety criteria.
When undergoing the CE Marking process special attention has to be given to ensure that the equipment is safe to operate & adheres to the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER).
