Electrically powered office furniture - a guide to the UK Regulations

At a glance:

The 62 page guide identifies the relationship with powered office furniture products such as sit / stand desking and other electrically powered office furniture falling within the scope of the Machinery Directive. The current industry practice is that the Machinery Directive did not apply to such products, probably due to the interpretation of the Directive.


Highlights:

  • Clarity on harmonised standards and European directives, CE Marking Directives, the Machinery Directive (2006/42/EC), the Low Voltage Directive (LVD) (2014/35/EU), Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Directive (2014/30/EU) and the RoHS Directive 2011/65/EU
  • Practical advice including proving conformity for CE marking, identifying applicable Directives and Standards, self-certification, internal checks on the manufacturing process to assess conformity, risk assessment, traceability, through to user instructions and safety information
