EC Type-Examination Certificate (Machinery Directive)
This certificate is issued by the Notified Body for Machinery at the TÜV Rheinland Industrie Service GmbH (NB No. 0035) for safety components according to Annex IV No. 19, 20 or 21 of the European Machinery Directive. The issue is based upon a documented type-examination/assessment of the product by the accredited test lab of the business area Automation – Functional Safety & Cyber Security and a subsequent conformity assessment against the requirements of Annex I of the Machinery Directive.
With the type-examination of these kinds of products it is shown that the product tested meets the requirements of the relevant standards and the product specification of the manufacturer and is therefore suitable for the use in the intended safety-related applications under consideration of the conditions specified in the installation and operating instructions for the product.
For these products a safety performance is shown in accordance with a specified safety level (SIL, PL, etc.) following the requirements of the relevant standards, and that they therefor are suitable for the use in safety functions up to the defined SIL / PL.
The standards forming the basis of testing are, so far relevant:
