Report and industry indicate the Directive is achieving its objectives

The Machine Working Group of the European Commission is preparing an evaluation of the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC. This evaluation was commissioned by the EC’s Directorate-General for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs (DG GROW). It is being undertaken by a consortium led by Technopolis Group over an 18-months period during 2016-2017. The evaluation will form the basis for a possible decision to start a revision of the Machinery Directive.
