WE ARE NOW RECRUITING - Visit our VACANCIES page for more information.

Recycling and Utilities IP

Recycling, utilities and transport are infrastructure driven operations with a strong reliance on mechanical and electrical engineering. CE marking is applicable to many components of such systems as well as the machinery used to build it. It may also apply to the completed infrastructure.

Conformance can help you achieve CE marking compliance for component parts as well as the complete installation and any specialist equipment used in its construction. 

  • Initial consultation to assess your requirements and decide how we can help.
  • Identify the directives and standards which apply to your product.
  • Conduct a design review to verify compliance with the applicable requirements.
  • Provide you with a report outlining areas of non-compliance and advice to help you rectify them.
  • Help to compile a technical file which contains the information required by the directives.
  • Provide a draft Declaration of Conformity and help you complete it.
  • Offer follow up advice when you need it.

Our recent industry experience includes:

  • Automotive shredder residue plant
  • Wastewater treatment equipment
  • Underground drilling & pipe laying equipment
  • Piling rigs
  • Rail infrastructure and maintenance equipment
  • Pumping and water supply
  • Broadband and mobile communications infrastucture
  • Traffic management equipment
  • Construction and groundworks equipment
  • Tunnelling machinery

Frequently Asked Questions:

Do I need to CE Mark my machinery?

Potentially, any piece of equipment with powered moving parts or electrical components will need to be CE marked. Our free initial consultation will confirm which directives apply to your products.

You can find the answers to many more CE marking questions in our knowledgebase.

Our machinery training covers the requirements of the Machinery Directive and how to ensure your machinery complies. We also do more basic 'introduction to CE marking' courses.

Design assistance

We can assist with interpreting the requirements of the directives and standards and applying them to your products. We can also draft instruction manuals, check the content of product labels, data plates, and packaging.

Technical files

If you are unsure what technical documentation you need to show compliance with the Directives we can provide contents lists and formats for compiling and storing the information.

Self-assessment materials

You will find checklists and formats for risk assessment in our online shop. We have many other checklists and report formats which are not in the shop - please contact us if you are looking for something specific and can't find it.

On-site inspection/assessment

We will visit your works to inspect and assess your machinery and identify any areas which do not comply with the applicable directives and standards.

Self certification guides

We provide guides which identify the applicable directives and standards for your product and all the other information you will need to do your own assessments. Every guide is tailored to your specific requirements and includes detailed information on how to do the assessment, checklists and formats for recording the results and a draft of the Declaration of Conformity you will need to sign when the process is complete.

Control system analysis

Analysis of the reliability of controls (e.g. emergency stops and guard interlocks) can be complex and difficult, particularly where there are significant numbers of safety-related control functions. Our machinery experts are experienced in conducting functional analysis of machines and systems and can help you navigate complex standards such as EN ISO 13849 and EN 62061 which apply to machinery.
