The Machine Directive

The Machine Directive

Valves installed within machines can in certain cases be viewed as partly finished machines themselves according to directive 2004/42EG, The Machine Directive. SOMAS has taken every step and precaution required to ensure that SOMAS valves comply with the basic health and safety regulations with the directive.
Complete technical documentation consisting of: Manufacturing analysis, risk analysis, standards used, requirements met and installation instructions. 
All of this and more is available for the concerned authorities for all forms of inspection.

Installation and mounting instructions are included with all delivered valves.
Shipments that have been agreed to fall under The Machine Directive also come with a “Assurance of installation” attached. This assurance shows that all requirements within the directive have been met by the specific valves as partly finished machines.

For more information about this directive, contact Senior Engineer Magnus Jansson.
