1st Seminar Choice
Introduction to PUWER
This presentation, hosted by David Corr of TÜV SÜD’s machinery team, will give an introduction to the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER). The regulations require users of work equipment to carry out risk assessment and provide work equipment that is suitable for its intended task and can be used without putting persons at risk. The Regulations cover any machinery, appliance, apparatus, tool or installation for use at work (whether exclusively or not).
What makes products really dangerous to consumers?
Every year we perform testing and screening checks on thousands of electrical products intended for consumers and many of them fail the requirements of the applicable test standards. Of course, non-compliant product should never make it to market, but we must consider the overall risk to the consumer. The key question is - are all non-compliant products truly dangerous to consumers? Luke Kington, Retail Laboratory Expert at TÜV SÜD Product Service, explains the difference between non-compliant and dangerous electrical products. He will explain what makes them dangerous and give you tips for helping to spot the safe products from the next headline!
2nd Seminar Choice
Designing for the Machinery Directive
Paul Laidler, the Machinery Division Director at TÜV SÜD Product Service, provides a presentation covering the amended Machinery Directive (2006/42/EC), which came into force in December 2009. It has one of the broadest scopes of all the CE marking Directives and there are few exclusions to the directive, making it one of the most significant of all the New Approach Directives.
CE marking for Consumer Products and Professional Electronics
Richard Poate, Senior Manager for TÜV SÜD Product Service, presents this seminar intended to provide a practical guide about what you need to know about the CE marking requirements for electrical equipment placed on the European Market. The material is intended to inform those that do not already understand CE marking requirements and to clarify and reinforce the understanding of those already familiar with the concepts.
3rd Seminar Choice
Safety Related Control Systems
Stewart Robinson, who is a member of MCE/3, the BSI Machinery Safeguarding Committee, and currently chairs the Safety Panel of the Institute of Measurement and Control, will host this seminar on safety related control systems and the safety functions that make a contribution to the Risk Reduction against hazards on machinery. Standards EN ISO 13849-1 and EN (IEC) 62061 will be examined, plus guidance will be given for the choice that must be made when deciding which standard to use. Stewart will also mention the options for the interlocking of machine guarding that users of machinery have and the decisions that should be made when implementing these safety measures.
Compliance with the RoHS Directive
Alastair McLaughlin, Product Safety Specialist at TÜV SÜD Product Service, will be discussing the key points concerning the Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive (RoHS). This Directive is important for anyone involved in the design, development,
production and selling of electronic and electrical products that are placed on the European market. This seminar will give you a comprehensive understanding of the restrictions imposed for hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment and the use of supply-chain management to show compliance.
4th Seminar Choice
An overview of ATEX
In this seminar, ATEX specialist Andy Holmes of TÜV SÜD Product Service will explore the impact of the ATEX directives, give knowledge of markings and help you understand what causes an explosion.
You will also learn about what needs to be done to ensure compliance with the ATEX directive.
Eco-design and the ErP Directive
The second presentation by Alastair McLaughlin will examine the Ecodesign and the Energy labelling of Energy-related Products (ErP) Directives. These directives have an increasingly wide scope, and are a precondition for your entitlement to attach the CE
Marking to your electrical and electronic products and offer them on the European market. Together with WEEE and RoHS, they are part of the mandatory process for sustainable, responsible production of energy-related products.
