If you design or make products, even for use in your own workplace, then they must meet minimum European requirements for health and safety when first placed on the market or put into service. The responsibility for ensuring that all equipment for use at work is designed and constructed to be safe rests with the product manufacturer or their authorised representative (also known as the ‘responsible person’).

machinery-safetyDuring initial stages of design, MTech Design Solutions must ensure products meet regulatory and technical requirements. Relevant standards may be used to support this process. CE marking of the product is the final part of the overall package of conformity assessment measures that the manufacturer or their authorised representative must take.

These measures include;

  • designing and constructing the product to meet relevant essential requirements
  • assembling evidence in a technical file to show how the product meets those essential requirements
  • certifying the products compliance with an EC Declaration of Conformity or Declaration of Incorporation
  • European Conformity (CE) marking has been properly affixed

MTech Design Solutions have undertaken accredited training covering such topics as CE marking, PUWER, EN Standards and risk assessment. This allows us to design with confidence and ensure you, the client, are meeting your obligations as a manufacturer.
