Application of the machinery directive

The workshop organized by Unacea and sponsored by SaMoTer is scheduled at Veronafiere on 28 February

What changes to the design of earth moving machinery will the new version of EN 474 bring about? What harmonized standards are currently in force for concrete machines?

 

SAVE THE DATE

The workshop analyses the application of the machinery directive in the construction sector with special reference to the reviewed EN 474 standard for the design of earth moving machinery and current and future regulations for concrete machinery.
The workshop will also deal with topics that are also pertinent to equipment and road-building machinery (soil compactors will be included in the new version of EN 474).
