|A 'Commission Implementing
Decision (EU) 2019/436' of 18 March 2019 was published
in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJ) on 19
March, relating to harmonised standards for the
Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC. This is the way changes
to the standards are being presented in the OJ from now
on: there is a complete list of harmonised standards in
Annex I, a further list in Annex II of harmonised
standards that are published in the OJ 'with a
restriction' and a list in Annex III of standards that
are being withdrawn.
While this makes it easy to see what is being withdrawn
(and there are two B-Type standards that have been
withdrawn) it is harder to see what has been added.
