An updated list of Machinery Directive Harmonised
Standards was published in the Official Journal
(OJ) of the European Union on 11 July 2014.
This time there have been no alterations to
the A-Type or B-Type machinery safety standards,
just C-Type standards relating to specific
classes of machinery.
New and updated C-Type Harmonised Standards
include those covering packaging machines,
industrial trucks, earth-moving machinery,
internal blinds, personal care robots, highway
maintenance machines, cranes, and turntable
ladders for fire and rescue appliances.
Follow the link to see a summary of the changes
and additions to the new list of Machinery
Directive Harmonised Standards,
and there you will also find a link to the
European Commission website so you can access
the definitive current list.
