Analysis This standard is the first part of the standard NF EN ISO 12100. It belongs to the series of type A standards (fundamental safety standards). It defines fundamental notions and the methodology intended to help engineering and design departments to incorporate safety for machines and appliances for professional and non-professional use. It may also be applied to other technical products which present similar dangerous phenomena. It is also intended to be used as a basis document to elaborate safety standards relating to specific machinery

Modifications With respect to document replaced, updating of the document to take into account the development of European comments (among other things the incorporation of notions relating to mobility and lifting) and non European approaches for its passage to ISO.
