Details on the risk assessment in Safexpert

CE-Guide

The CE Guide according to the Machinery Directive 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 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

Safexpert provides these functions for the optimal workflow:

  • During the project-setup-wizard you evaluate which directives are relevant (e. g. Machinery Directive or Low Voltage Directive)
  • Classification of the product (only Machine Directive): You define which product group of the Machine Directive your product is to be assigned to (e.g. machinery, partly completed machinery, interchangeable equipment, removable mechanical transmission devices, etc.)
  • Evaluate the relevant directives: You define which other directives (e. g. EMC, PED, ATEX, RED, etc.) are used.
  • Evaluate the relevant standards: You determine which standards you would like (voluntarily) to apply when developing your product. The Safexpert StandardsManager module supports you in your research!
  • Using (directive-specific) checklists, you avoid forgetting important points when arranging the technical files!
  • As part of the full quality assurance, you check whether your product complies with the technical files.
  • Then print out the declaration of conformity in the last step. Here you can easily integrate the company logo. Of course, Safexpert warns you of the printout if all the required points in the project have not yet been marked as "done"!

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:

  • Automatische Aktualitätsüberwachungen von Maßnahmen der Risikobeurteilung 
  • Analyse der Auswirkung von Zeitverzögerungen, z.B. wenn sich das Datum des Inverkehrbringens verschiebt
  • Überprüfung, ob Maßnahmen noch aktuell sind, wenn Projekte oder einzelne Maßnahmen kopiert werden.

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 special reference data
  • Standards in full text are available both as individual standards and in special standards packages.

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 Check and Acceptance Assistent

The Check and Acceptance Assistant 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 checklists
  • Selectable check depths - When creating checklists, 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 checklists for common applications, which can be imported directly into the Safexpert Check and Acceptance Assistant.
