CE Marking Training Courses

We offer 4 different types of CE Marking training courses. Whether you are looking to self-certify your machines, involved in pre-purchase auditing, or in deciding where due diligence is necessary, we have a CE Marking course for you.

All our courses are delivered at our Spiers Training Centre in Tamworth, Staffordshire*

CE Marking for Industrial Machinery (Level 2) Training

The aim of this CE marking course is to give machine manufacturers, modifiers, and those involved in pre-purchase auditing, an understanding of what is required to demonstrate compliance with the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC (MD).

Who is it aimed at?

Our CE Marking courses are recommended for designers, integrators, modifiers and those involved in pre-purchase auditing of machines. It is particularly important for those responsible for managing the conformity assessment process and moderating or guiding others.

Learning Outcomes

  • Gain a good understanding of what is required to demonstrate compliance with the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC (MD)
  • Recognise when CE marking of machines is required and which Directives may apply
  • Learn how to establish a design risk assessment (DRA) team and process for a new project
  • Learn what to expect in the contents of the TCF (Technical construction file)

CE Audit Training

There are many reasons you may decide to perform due diligence on the conformity of an industrial machine to the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC but the most common are:

  • Sourcing a new machine for use or incorporation into a project
  • Internal checks for quality assurance on the conformity assessment procedure
  • Factory Acceptance Test (FAT)

Who is it aimed at?

This course would suit any person required to check the conformity of an industrial machine for the purposes listed above. This can be a safety manager, engineering manager, project manager or in the case of a machine manufacturer it may be a compliance manager, QSHE manager, designer, product manager or similar.

Learning Outcomes

After completing this course, you will leave knowing how to use the CE Audit of industrial machines checklist to:

  1. Identify typical obvious design defects in the CE process of industrial machine
  2. How to audit the instruction handbook

In order to meet the learning outcomes above, we will look (in detail) at:

  • The Purpose of CE Audits
  • Roles and responsibilities
  • Conformity assessment procedures
  • Relevant directives
  • Conformity Assessment
  • The principles of integration and the 3 Step Method
  • Markings on the machine
  • Instruction Handbook
  • Declaration
  • Technical Construction File (in brief)

DRA Risk Assessment (DRA) for Industrial Machines training

This 1 day workshop will give you the reasoning and method behind design risk assessment (DRA) for industrial machines.

Design risk assessment is a legal requirement when certifying or modifying machines and is an essential step in achieving/maintaining conformity with Essential Health and Safety Requirements.

Who is it aimed at?

This course is aimed at anyone involved in design or modification of industrial machines who wants a short but high impact session on how to analyse the situation, select appropriate protective measures and document the decision-making process.

Learning Outcomes

  • The basic legal requirements applicable to design risk assessment (DRA)
  • How to select appropriate protective measures for industrial machines in line with BS EN 12100.
  • A simple method for documenting your design risk assessments and guidance on appropriate management systems to meet your legal requirements.
  • A high level of confidence on specifying change to existing or new machines.

Industrial Machines – Compliant Change Management

Wouldn’t it be great if you could buy a machine, drop it in, and then use it for 20 years before scrapping it and buying a new one? In reality, it doesn’t work that way. You often need to reuse or repurpose industrial machines to meet new production requirements or changing legislation and best practices.

This leaves you with a conundrum; how far should you go in evidencing your decisions, designs or specifications? The answer, as usual, is that it depends.

This course provides you with a method to apply to decide what level of diligence is appropriate and what scope that diligence should have.

We use typical scenarios to frame the discussions where you will challenge yourself and others as to what is appropriate but in a structured way using the criteria from this short but effective method.

Who is it aimed at?

This course is aimed at anyone responsible for or involved in deciding where due diligence is necessary in order to demonstrate conformity with legal requirements as the result of an engineering change or a change of use of industrial machines.

Examples of change to industrial equipment that would require management of change to ensure they continue to meet the essential requirements, are correctly certified and safe may include:

  • Integration several machines together
  • Modification of a safety concepts; e.g. Modification of fix guarding
  • New interlocking movable guards
  • Use of light curtains where previously there were none
  • Change of use that is not included in the handbook of the machine

Learning Outcomes

  • To introduce and explore the Compliant Change Management Procedure
  • To ensure that change applications are made with an appropriate compliance-based justification in order that industrial machines continue to be compliant and safe to use and maintain.
  • To ensure that opportunities to improve industrial machine compliance within the scope of proposed changes are recognised.
  • To ensure proper and up-to-date auditable document control for industrial machines and safety characteristics of those industrial machines with particular focus on safety related control systems.
  • To raise awareness of all engineers and managers with influence over any change or maintenance activities that are required to ensure asset integrity of industrial machines. E.g. What are the duties that relate to asset integrity and change management? Set the scene to give reasons for people to take any notice of what we’re saying.
  • To be able to identify safety critical control systems and the basic safety principles. E.g. What are the safe conditions?
  • To be able to contribute to a safety requirements specification for any change to safety critical control system.
  • To formally control, to an appropriate level, change of machines.
