What is the CE Mark
The CE mark... for the record
Manufacturers have a high degree of responsibility to produce information for operators as part of the CE marking process. This takes the form of producing operating manuals, description of the intended uses, service schedules and inspection regimes.
Sticking to these regimes will ensure that they meet their obligations as an operator. They have to be aware though that if there has been a significant change, accident or a major new component fitted to a lifting machine then a further thorough examination and load test may be required.
All Penny Hydraulics’ products are covered by
The Supply of Machinery (Safety) Regulations 1992, also called the Machinery Directive. This contains the essential health and safety criteria that all machines must meet.
There are responsibilities for designers, manufacturers and suppliers. We have developed a“technical file” that is a legal requirement and it documents how we meet these criteria. Having documented how we meet the criteria we can fix the CE mark to the hoist and release a “Declaration of Conformity”..
