Machinery Directive Harmonised Standards list, 15 January 2016The latest list of Machinery Directive Harmonised Standards was published in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJ) on 15 January 2016 (reference 2016/C 014/01). 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 (2.2MB PDF) and it supersedes all previous versions. As with the last list published in February 2015, 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. Unlike last time, the standards developed by CENELEC have also been categorised in the latest list (apart from two exceptions). As it is almost a year since the last list of Machinery Directive Harmonised Standards was published in the OJ, there are nearly twice as many changes in this list (over 60) compared with last time.

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.
