CE certification : or the risk of “unsafe” certifications for category C standard equipment.

The complexity of regulations, the strength of habits, the cost of technical and security standards, both in the acquisition of documents, their reading and understanding, their business transposition, expose to a major risk of CE certification “insincere”, in particular in the case of machinery falling within category C standards (a standard dealing with detailed safety requirements for a particular machine or group of machines)

In certain trades, such as continuous conveyor belt bulk handling, which falls under EN 620 (category C), I have observed that a very large number of conveyors, bearing the CE mark, do not respond strictly to the safety requirements of the Machinery Directive 2006/42 / EC and repeated by the category A standard, reference EN ISO 12100v2010.
