Rules for exporting machines to Europe will change December 31, 2011

Companies that wish to export machinery to the European market need to make sure the machinery is safe and compliant with the Machinery Directive. There are changes that will take place to this standard and they will take effect on December 31, 2011. EN 954-1 is the part of the Machinery Directive that will change. EN 62061 and EN ISO 13849-1 are due to replace the familiar standard EN 954-1 when it comes to the design of safety related control systems.
