The TÜV Association and DEKRA welcome a deepening of the Single Market Strategy in the area of approval procedures for non road mobile machinery. In order to facilitate the free road circulation of non road mobile machinery and to achieve an appropriate harmonized level of safety, national-level approvals could in future, under certain conditions, be mutually recognised by the authorities of the EU Member States.
The following points should be taken into account:
Type Approval for small series
In-house technicel services of the manufacturer
No self-certification by industry
Requirements from the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC
Coherence with the “New Approach” (NLF) and requirements of Regulation (EU) 2019/1020 on market surveillance and product conformity
Holistic requirements for an approval procedure
