Appropriate risk assessment for the CE marking of your machines
We provide you with a risk assessment for CE marking acc. to DIN EN ISO 12100 for your machines and production lines according to the requirements of the appropriate EU Directives (Machinery Directive, etc.).
- In any phase: planning, design, production and after installation.
- Risk assessment with risk analysis and the risk evaluation acc. to DIN EN ISO 12100 and DIN EN ISO 13849
- Functional safety
Why risk assessment according to DIN EN ISO 12100?
DIN EN ISO 12100 „Safety of machinery – General principles for design – Risk assessment and risk reduction“ is a harmonised standard for the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC. The standard supports designers in producing safe machines – and thus plays a key role in the process to CE marking of machines. Risk assessment according to this standard means: The basic terminology is specified, approved methods as well as general principles for risk assessment and risk reduction are applied.

Facts about the risk assessment
Regulations and laws require performing a risk assessment with the aim to minimise risks so that machines and systems can be operated with reduced risk. The procedure of a risk assessment contains the processes of a risk analysis, a risk estimate and a risk evaluation to result in a minimised risk for machines and production lines. In the course of the risk assessment, first a risk analysis is carried out, which specifies the limits of a machine or production line and at the same time identifies possible hazards. Basing on that analysis, the risk is assessed in terms of scope and occurrence of a damage. The risk is evaluated. As part of the procedure of risk assessment, checks are carried out to see in how far the risk for determined hazards has been reduced. The risk assessment is an iterative process to minimise risks to the largest extent possible. After deciding that the risk has been reduced sufficiently, the risk assessment is documented.
