Machinery Directive

GT Engineering is a consultancy company specialising in the Machinery Directive (2006/42(EC) and CE Marking of Machinery. As well as carrying out risk analysis in accordance with the mandatory legislation, we try to answer all your regulatory questions. That is why we participate in the main technical working groups for the drafting of Machinery legislation, both at international level (IEC and ISO) and North American level (NFPA, UL, B11, CSA). We can also help you with all aspects of directives related to the Machinery Directive, such as Low Voltage (2014/35/EU), ATEX Products (2014/34/EU), Electromagnetic Compatibility (2014/30/EU) and PED (2014/68/EU).
