Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC

The lifting accessories produced by STAS-LIFTEUROP comply with the European machinery directive 2006/42/EC.
Since 29 December 2009, the European machinery directive 2006/42/EC has replaced the former machinery directive (98/37/EC). It stipulates that lifting accessories, chains, cables, hooks and rings, are subject to the same regulations as machinery.

In practice this means that:

  • All lifting accessories must have CE marking
  • A declaration of conformity and instructions must accompany each delivery
  • The manufacturer must be clearly identified

The lifting accessories produced by STAS-LIFTEUROP comply, on all points, with the law.
