What should be on the product/type plate?

In general, the CE Marking should be affixed to the product or the machinery plate of the products.

Furthermore, in conformity with the Machine Directive 2006/42/EC, the following data, at least, must be visibly, clearly readable and indelibly affixed to every machine:

  • the firm name and the manufacturer’s full address and, in some cases, his authorised representative 
  • the machine indication
  • the CE Marking
  • the series or type indication
  • the serial number, if known 
  • the building year, this means the year that the manufacturing process was finished.
