CE Audit Seminars

When purchasing new machinery, it is important to ensure that it meets all of the legal requirements, is CE marked correctly and is safe.

This seminar is aimed at people purchasing machinery, as well as manufacturers, to guide them as to what information is reasonable to share. It will explain what to check in a Technical File, and what documentation is required.

There are example Declarations to be reviewed, some correct, some not, and a CE audit checklist is provided to use in real audits, with an explanation of what to look for. This does not remove the need for a PUWER assessment when the machine is installed, however, it does ensure that ‘Regulation 10’ of PUWER has been addressed and ensures that, if there are any non-compliances, they are brought to the manufacturer’s attention before the machine is shipped, and before the final payments are made.

The machine manufacturers permission should be requested before a CE audit is carried out, as there is no legal right for anyone to see the Technical File, other than the Health and Safety Authorities, however, any manufacturer not willing to demonstrate that the Technical File can be compiled, should be treated with caution as in the event of a problem they may not take any responsibility.
