The Essential Health and Safety Requirements (EHSRs) of the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC require that all machinery is safe in its use of electricity. This means that complying with the current version of the type-B standard for electrical safety of machines (EN 60204-1) gives a presumption of compliance with the relevant EHSRs unless voltages exceed 1,000V AC or 1,500V DC.
This presumption of compliance is also given by this standard to equipment that is covered by the Low Voltage Directive.
Clause 18 of the standard prescribes the tests that have to be made to verify compliance. amtri veritas can perform these tests for you, as well as validate your compliance with the standard.
