SafetyOur equipment handles materials and products of all sizes and shapes. It operates under various constraints such as speed, height and precision, thereby necessitating a high level of safety for workers and their environment throughout its lifetime.

Whilst manufacturers engineer and produce equipment with this absolute necessity in mind, in turn we expect market surveillance to ensure that products placed on the market are compliant with EU regulatory requirements (safety, health, environmental protection). This is the duty of public market surveillance authorities.

Key messages
>>>   Effective and efficient market surveillance is necessary
>>>   Third party certification cannot replace market surveillance
>>>   Self-certification must remain a basic principle of Internal Market legislation
