Experience the benefits of expert machinery inspection

Services for industrial machinery | TÜV Rheinland
We inspect industrial machinery to actively prevent defects and reduce liability

Once your company has earned our independent approval, you will be able to reap the benefits. The approval is recognized worldwide, and comes with documentation of safety standards, which can reduce liability. It is also a selling point for manufacturers, giving you an edge over the competition. Internally, you will be able to better avoid defects and all the risks, costs and inconveniences they create.

Through our global machinery assessment service, we conduct testing and certification of machinery according to international standards and regulations – from the EU Machinery Directive to OSHA in the US as well as customer specifications. This allows you to keep track of the constantly changing safety regulations for new, old and modified machinery on a local and global level and ensure the conformity of your machinery.

Compliance with European directive 2006/42/EC and your needs

Our machinery assessments are based on European directives and regulations and include:

  • EC type examination for machines under Annex IV of the Machinery Directive as Notified Body
  • Conformity Assessment for products in the scope of the machinery directive
  • Assessment of quality management systems in accordance with Annex X of the Machinery Directive

Inspections are tailor-made for your company and your machines. Some of the tasks we carry out are:

  • Check for ergonomics, ease of operational use, and service
  • On-site testing of electromagnetic radiation (EMC, EMF)
  • Assessment of functional safety of control systems
  • Safety evaluations for commissioning of machinery and evaluation of energy consumption values

Our support extends beyond direct inspection of machinery. We can provide:

  • Support while compiling risk analysis and risk assessments
  • Support with new developments and modifications

We also support you with worldwide market access services, among others:

  • Evaluations for compliance with SEMI guidelines S2, S8, S23, etc.
  • USA and Canada:
    through our Field Evaluation Services, our NRTL cTUVus certification according to UL and CSA standards and our Panel Shop Program for the certification of enclosure manufacturers according to UL508A, NFPA 79 and CSA C22.2 No. 14
  • Brazil:
    through our assessment testing of materials, components and finished products in accordance with NR 12
  • India:
  • by testing and issuing a Chartered Engineer Letter for used machines to be exported to India

For your convenience, we have streamlined the procedure to include just two simple steps. First, we prepare a bid proposal based on the information you provide about your machinery and target markets. Second, we carry out the necessary inspections and either issue a certificate (positive assessment) or a detailed report of open points and modifications to be made (negative assessment).
