Machinery Directive Harmonised Standards, 13 February 2015The latest list of Machinery Directive Harmonised Standards was published in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJ) on 13 February 2015 (reference 2015/C 054/01). These Harmonised standards provide a presumption of conformity with the essential health and safety requirements (EHSRs) of the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC. This latest complete list of standards harmonised to the Machinery Directive can be downloaded from the European Commission website (2.6MB PDF) and it supersedes all previous versions. As with the last list published in July 2014, the standards are categorised as A-type standards, B-type standards (but not B1 and B2 types) and C-type standards, with an explanation provided for each type. However, standards developed by CENELEC are not classified as A, B or C-type standards in this list.

The information below has been extracted with care from the official list, but it remains the reader's responsibility to check the OJ list via the link above, and also to check the Machinery Directive page on the European Commission website for any newer lists.

New and updated harmonised standards and amendments published in the list for the first time are as below.

Changes to A-Type standards harmonised to the Machinery Directive

There are no new or amended A-Type standards.

[Editor's note: the section for C-Type standards lists EN 1127-2:2014, Explosive atmospheres - Explosion prevention and protection - Part 2: Basic concepts and methodology for mining. In the subsequent list of Machinery Directive Harmonised Standards published in the OJ on 15 January 2016, this standard is listed as an A-Type standard.]
