Internal Market: Orgalim review of options for PED Guideline C-13

Published: 15 December 2021

Policies & Issues: Internal Market - Product Safety Legislation

Orgalim represents both machine and pressure equipment manufacturers. In this context, our members made an analysis of the possible impacts that a change in the conformity assessment practices related to the integration of PED equipment with CE-marking into machinery products would have on their industries1. According to our data collection, we estimate a significant impact on machinery manufacturers without enhancing the safety of the machines. Therefore, Orgalim calls for maintaining the current market practice.

We believe that an enhanced option 3 would be the most effective solution to address legal clarity for the PED: introducing a provision in the Machinery Products Regulation that would modify the PED. As a fall-back option, if the enhanced Option 3 is not feasible, we could accept Option 2, provided that the new guideline is adopted before the deletion of the notes to the current PED Guideline C-13.
