This 2-day training course covers both CE marking and the Machinery Directive and UKCA marking and the UK Supply of Machinery (Safety) Regulations.
All machinery suppliers must ensure machinery is safe and correctly marked: this means it needs to comply with all relevant Directives (for CE marking) and Regulations (for UKCA marking). Complying with the right harmonised and designated standards gives a presumption of conformity with directives and regulations.
This training deals with CE and UKCA marking obligations in general and the requirements of the EU Machinery Directive and the UK Machinery Safety regulations in particular. It allows you to assess how the Essential Health and Safety Requirements (EHSRs) apply to your products and what your duties are as a manufacturer or responsible person.
Machinery manufacturers, importers of machinery, machinery designers, purchasers, mechanical engineers, project managers, machine and control system designers, safety and process engineers.
The course consists of presentations, exercises and worked examples and provides interactive participation and question-and-answer sessions. Each day runs from 09.00 to 16.30 with breaks for refreshments and lunch. All participants receive a certificate of attendance if they attend all days and complete the exercises.
