1.2.4.4. Assembly of machinery

In the case of machinery or parts of machinery designed to work together, the machinery must be designed and constructed in such a way that the stop controls, including the emergency stop devices, can stop not only the machinery itself but also all related equipment, if its continued operation may be dangerous.

Comment:

The text of the former Machinery Directive mentioned complex installations without defining machines or installations that were under the scope of this requirement.

Original Comment:

Le texte de l’ancienne directive machines mentionnait installations complexes sans toutefois définir les machines ou installations qui étaient couvertes par l’exigence.
