That's the point:
The time has come!
After more than 15 years, the previous EU Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC will be replaced by the new EU Machinery Regulation.
The EU Parliament and the EU Council have adopted the new regulation, which was officially published in the Official Journal of the European Union on 29 June 2023.
Member States and economic operators will then have 42 months before the provisions of the new regulation are applied.
For technical documentation, a long-awaited change is becoming reality: the digital instruction handbook.
Manufacturers of products should address the new possibilities of digitalisation as early and as quickly as possible.
Too much money for too much paper
An example: One page of printed paper costs about 0.06€. Let’s assume you produce 2000 machines a year. Each manual contains 300 pages. This results in 600,000 sheets of paper just for printing the instructions.
600.000 x 0,06 € = 36.000 €
The future takes shape
In April 2023, the new EU Machinery Regulation was adopted by the European Parliament. This was now officially published in the Official Journal of the European Union on 29.06.2023. For companies, this will open the doors for digital operating instructions.
