Details on the risk assessment in Safexpert


The CE Guide according to the Machinery Directive or Machinery Regulation guides manufacturers of machinery and plants step by step through the conformity assessment procedure.


For manufacturers of electrical equipment, the CE Guide according to the Low Voltage Directive offers the optimal support to get to CE in a legally secure manner.

Step by step to CE

Step by step, the CE Guide leads to the CE mark and declaration of conformity. Depending on the product (machine, partly completed machine and/or electrical equipment) the user is guided through the necessary process steps in a structured manner:

Machinery Regulation (EU) 2023/1230

  1. Classification of the product
  2. Clarify application of harmonisation legislation
  3. Clarify application of standards
  4. Carry out a risk assessment
  5. Compile technical documentation
  6. Clarify conformity assessment procedures for Annex I products
  7. Production monitoring
  8. Issue EU Declaration of Conformity and affix CE marking

Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC

  1. Classification of product
  2. Apply relevant directives
  3. Apply relevant standards
  4. Perform risk assessment
  5. Compile technical file
  6. Assess conformity of Annex IV product
  7. Perform internal manufacturing checks
  8. Print EC declaration of conformity

Low Voltage Directive 2014/35/EU

  1. Clarify the application of additional directives
  2. Evaluate relevant standards
  3. Perform a risk assessment
  4. Compile technical documentation
  5. Perform internal manufacturing control
  6. Print EU declaration of conformity

Included templates and checklists

To ensure that you carry out the conformity assessment procedure as efficiently and legally compliant as possible, Safexpert provides you with the features of the CE guides as well as directive-specific templates (e.g. for declarations of conformity and declarations of incorporation) and checklists (e.g. for compiling the technical documentation including operating instructions or for the requirements of the respective directive/regulation).

Safexpert StandardsManager

At first glance, one could assume that StandardManager is a conventional standards database. In fact, however, the support goes far beyond that. The software supports you in several areas:


Basic functions:

  • Search for relevant standards in special data packages
  • Detailed data on status, presumption of conformity, predecessor, successor, ...
  • Direct access to full texts

Digital analyses:

  • Automatic update monitoring of risk assessment measures
  • Analysis of the effect of time delays, e.g. if the date of placing on the market is postponed
  • Check whether measures are still up to date when projects or individual measures are copied.

Digital engineering:

  • New standards? Safexpert analyzes down to section level which changes are relevant for you - clear comparison of new and old requirements replace tedious manual activities!

Available data packages and standards packages

In order not to produce unnecessary costs in the standards research, Safexpert offers various data products:

  • Standards research and monitoring of actuality are based on data packages.
  • The functions of the Safexpert Change Assistant are based on document structures.
  • Standards in full text are available both as individual standards and in special standards packages.
  • Valuable additional knowledge on standards or laws provides important information in the respective section of the document.

This has several advantages:

  • No unnecessary costs for unused full text documents
  • Companies that already have a standards subscription can use the Safexpert update checks without having to procure the expensive full text documents twice.
  • You only pay for those data products that you actually use. 

Overview on the available data products

Safexpert CheckManager

The CheckManager supports you with the uniform checking and acceptance of machines, partly completed machines or other products. The advantages of standardized tests are:

  • Uniformity and standardization in check processes
  • Central administration and updating of checkpoint-libraries
  • Selectable check depths - When creating checkpoint-libraries, different check depths can be specified in order to adapt the level of detail of tests to the situational requirements.

Tip: Experts from our Standards Expert Community (SECOM) have already created checkpoint-libraries for common applications, which can be imported directly into the Safexpert CheckManager.
