November 27 was published the Inception Impact Assessment (which you can find attached) for the possible revision of the 2000 / 14 / CE Directive on the environmental noise emission of outdoor machines and equipment.
The aim of the document is to inform citizens and stakeholders about the programs of the European Commission in order to have first feedback on the project and effectively participate in future consultation activities.
The document consists of four parts:
The 21 / 2017 / EU Directive has been published on the European Official Gazette of November 2102 / XNUMX, which partially modifies the RoHS Directive II (Restricted Use of Certain Dangerous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment).
The main purpose of the new legislative provision is to adapt the text of RoHS Directive II to the legislative framework regulating the placing on the market of products
The main novelties that will be introduced by the 2017 / 2102 / EU Directive are as follows:
With the NOMAD project, the European Commission had analyzed the sound emission levels statements of the machines in the maintenance manuals of manufacturers.
Inail, in accordance with the provisions of section 2 of Art. 6 17 / 2010 2 (7 459 96), conducts technical assessment activities in support of the Italian Market Supervisory Authority (Ministry of Economic Development and Ministry of Labor and Social Policies).
The European Commission has published the evaluation study on the 2006 / 42 / CE Machinery Directive that it had commissioned Technopolis.
The purpose of the assessment is to verify the performance of the Directive and to determine whether it is useful in achieving the objectives it seeks to ascertain whether or not it is necessary to carry out its review. This is the decision that the Commission will have to take in the coming months based on the analysis of the results of this study.
In the Official Journal of the European Union of September 8, updated lists of harmonized standards have been published in accordance with 2014 / 34 / EU ATEX and 2014 / 35 / EU LVD Directives.
The lists can be consulted at the following links:
• Harmonized ATEX standards
The next 3 October, ANIMA organizes, as the first moment of in-depth study, an information seminar on the 2014 / 53 / EU RED Directive.
We remind that the 2014 / 53 / EU Directive has repealed the previous 1999 / 5 / CE Directive 'R & TTE' and represents, from last 13 June 2017, the legislative provision for making available on the European Union market of radio equipment . The Directive has introduced a number of novelties, such as specific requirements for equipment incorporating radio equipment (combined-equipment).
The upgrading of the Community Guideline (2.1 Edition) to the 2006 / 42 / CE Machinery Directive has been made publicly available in English on the site Of the Commission for the Machinery sector And you can download it directly to this link.
The Commission is launching a translation program in only German and French languages.
Since the 13 June June formally expired the coexistence period between the previous 1999 / 5 / CE R & TTE Directive and 2014 / 53 / EU RED Directive (transposed in Italy by Legislative Decree 22 June 2016 No. 128) on radio equipment, Now fully in force.
One of the important consequences of this deadline is the correct application of the new Directive in the case of radio equipment used in machines conforming to the 2006 / 42 / CE Directive.
The 2014 / 53 / EU Directive (transposed in Italy by Legislative Decree 22 June 2016 No. 128) on radio equipment is formally in force since last year and the next 13 June 2017 expires the "coexistence" period with the previous Directive 1999 / 5 / EC.
In view of this deadline, the European Commission has published in the Official Gazette (12 May 2017 C149 / 6 series) the updated list of harmonized standards under the Directive (the list is available at following link)
