EUROPUMP Guideline on Directive 2006/42/EC (New Machinery Directive)

Published: 1/05/2011 |

The New Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC came into force on 30 December 2009. It brought some changes which affect the pump industry. The revised definition of "machinery" led to the biggest change in conformity assessment for years. Changes on the fixing of guards and the requirements for documentation were included in the revision. This guideline gives specific support to pump manufacturers and is a valuable addition to the official Guidelines (issued by the European Commission). It gives brief but substantial information and a clear interpretation of the directive’s content.
