    IFA - Institute for Occupational Safety and Health of the German Social Accident Insurance (DGUV) (Germany)

    The IFA proposes the choice of options 2 and 4. However, as the application of the existing Directive has proved its worth in the vast majority of cases, the scope of amendments should be deliberately kept to a minimum in order to allow all users of the Directive the simplest possible transition in the application of a new Regulation. Only on particularly important points should additions or adaptations be made in order to promote clarity in...

Die Definition einer „unvollständigen Maschine“ sollte klarer gefasst werden. Zu der unvollständige Maschine müsste in der Montageanleitung eine Auflistung enthalten sein, die deutlich macht, welche Teile der Maschine zu...

Consumers benefit from the greater choice of products, and from competition. However, some limitations can still be observed. We therefore agree the Machinery...
