The Association of Manufacturers and suppliers of Power Systems and ancillary equipment

Workgroup 9 Updates

Workgroup 9 – Equipment Safety – Leader: Andrew Greer

The main focus of this workgroup is the Machinery (Safety) Directive. This has been transposed into UK Law by the Supply of Machinery (Safety) Regulations 2008 et al.

EUROPGEN is currently completely aligned with ORGALIME positions on the Machinery Directive revision requirements. The main position is to avoid more onerous requirements until the existing requirements can be effectively enforced, i.e. that the current MD remains fit for purpose.

Target for issue of the revised MD will be 2024.  The Workgroup will continue to be involved in consultations, workshops and meetings etc.
