A working group was started in 2010 with the objective to establish guidelines for application of the EU Machinery Directive in real-life situations.
The EU Machinery Directive briefly defines the content and structure of user manuals. The Directive leaves plenty of scope for interpretation, discussion, and justification. Machines and plants produced in Europe may include components not only from Europe but from all over the world. The documentation, seen as an integral part of a machine or plant, is often not in conformance with the Directive.
Available for members only.
