Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC Annex IV and CCQS accredited Annex IV scopes

Machinery of the categories shown below, listed in this annex of the Directive is regarded as especially dangerous. Manufacturers may be able to make a self-declaration of conformity without reference to a Notified Body, but only if they can show that their equipment is completely in conformity with all the relevant requirements of a harmonised C type standard and the standard adequately covers all hazards that the equipment presents.
If that is not the case, the manufacturer must ask an appropriately accredited Machinery Directive Notified Body to examine the equipment. The Notified Body will issue an EC Type Examination certificate or an assessment of the manufacturers Quality system that ensures conformity.

 

CCQS is  a Notified Body for most of the equipment in MD Annex IV. Our Notification does not cover categories of equipment shown in grey highlight. We are also not accredited for examination of Quality systems for MD conformity.
