EMV und Niederspannungsrichtlinie 2014/30/EU und 2014/35/EU – Sicherheitsanforderungen für den Maschinenbau
EMC Directive 2014/30/EU aNd Low Voltage Directive 2014/35/EU – mechanical engineering Safety requirements
Helpful advice on practical implementation company-wide
This practical handbook on the Electromagnetic Compatibility Directive (EMCD) 2014/30/EU and the Low Voltage Directive (LVD) 2014/35/EU offers a detailed overview of legislated regulations currently in force in the European Union, and provides useful advice on their practical implementation from a business perspective.
It also defines the boundaries and degree of overlap to vertical (product-specific) EU harmonization legislation, such as the Radio Equipment Directive (RED) 2014/53/EU and the Machinery Directive (MD) 2006/42/EC.
Significance of the EMC Directive 2014/30/EU and the Low Voltage Directive 2014/35/EU
The EMC Directive 2014/30/EU and the Low Voltage Directive 2014/35/EU are among the most important product regulation provisions within the European Union. Manufacturers, importers, authorized representatives as well as distributors of electrical and electronic products need to know these guidelines.
In recent years, consulting and research enquiries regarding global regulations on EMC and safety have risen drastically. Many companies are finding that having early access to information regarding the requirements they have to fulfil as well as mandatory authorizations is essential. Not least due to the sensitive nature of compliance in the context of mitigating the risks for which management is liable as well as to avoid needless fees and charges because of delayed market entry, contractual penalties or regulatory sanctions.
Differences between consumer products and work tools
Yet there are major differences between traditional consumer products such as household appliances and IT devices, and work tools such as machinery and mechanized equipment. Which is where this book comes in. The authors Carsten Ebeling and Michael Loerzer compare the most important European regulations on CE marking (the Low Voltage, EMC and Machinery Directives) with non-European regulations of the most active import-export regions.
