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.
