Normalisation et sécurité des machines (en anglais)

This topic aims to provide background information about legislation and standardization relating to the safe design of machinery, together with the revision process of four basic technical documents, around which the ETUI has been trying to promote and coordinate a trade union focus both at national and European level.

It also gives guidance on how to intervene in the production of machinery standards and of any other standards of interest for trade unions across Europe. In providing this information, the ETUI has benefited from the contribution of Jean-Paul Lacore and Paul Makin, two experts who have been deeply involved in the work since the birth of the machinery standardization programme back to 1985.
