CE Mark | Declaration of Conformity
CE Mark on OMAX Corporation's equipment is an external declaration of compliance with the applicable European Union New Approach (EU) Directives. The use of the CE Mark is supported via a Declaration of Conformity (DoC) and a Technical File (TF).
The DoC identifies the EU directives and standards to which conformity is declared. The TF contains all pertinent product data. The TF must be kept at the disposal of the national authorities for at least 10 years from the last date of manufacture of the product.
The EU directives to which OMAX equipment is compliant and thereby declared on a typical OMAX DoC include the following: Low Voltage Directive 2014/35/EU, Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC and Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Directive 2014/30/EU.
The Low Voltage Directive applies to electrical equipment (with some exclusions) designed for use with a voltage rating of between 50 and 1000 V for alternating current and between 75 and 1500 V for direct current. The equipment must not endanger the safety of persons, domestic animals and property when properly installed, maintained and used as intended by the manufacturer.
The Machinery Directive requires the manufacturer, importer, or an authorized representative, to place on the market or put into service, machinery that conforms to mandatory essential health and safety requirements. The new Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC superseded Machinery Directive 98/37/EC on 29 December 2009.
The EMC Directive applies to most electric and electronic equipment as well as equipment and systems that contain electric and/or electronic components. This directive regulates the emission from electronic/electrical equipment and the degree of immunity to electromagnetic interference in the vicinity of the equipment. For some product categories, separate directives exist with their own EMC criteria.
