In case you missed it, the most popular item in last month's newsletter was the new mCom+ machinery safety risk assessment management system from TUV SUD Product Service. This helps users meet their obligations relating to both the Machinery Directive and PUWER. Simple checklists ensure that no vital steps are missed, and a final report provides a prioritised action list for areas of non-compliance.

This issue of the newsletter has an extended 'Events and courses' section, in addition to the usual spread of industry news and products for machine builders. If you scroll down, you will also see that our 'useful resource' item is back.
