Changeover to the new Machinery Regulation

In this half-day seminar, we will teach you the relevant innovations to the new Machinery Regulation (EU) 2023/1230.

The new Machinery Regulation (MR) replaces the Machinery Directive (MD 2006/42/EC). Don't waste any time and familiarise yourself now with the innovations and changes that affect your product and your conformity assessment process.

This will also enable you to anticipate possible customer demands that require contractual fulfilment of the Machinery Directive now or in the near future.

The half-day online seminar provides you with a compact and well-founded introduction to the new Machinery Regulation.

Seminar programme

Important basic knowledge

  • What impact the transition from Directive to Regulation will have on businesses
  • Why was Directive 2006/42/EC amended?
  • By when does which regulation have to be applied?
  • Why there is no transitional period and how you can best prepare for the deadline

New and changed requirements for design, control system construction and documentation

  • Many things remain the same! Which relevant requirements are new or changed
  • Which - in particular - mechanical changes are relevant
  • What needs to be considered for machines with self-changing behaviour
  • What is changing with regard to the requirements for control systems and what role security now plays.

  • What additional content is required in the operating instructions

Changed conformity assessment processes and definitions

  • Significant change: Now regulated at European level with the new Machinery Regulation!
  • What is changing in the conformity assessment procedures
  • When your product falls into the "high-risk machine" category and what this means for you.
