Most new machinery is covered by the Supply of Machinery Safety Regulations 2008. These regulations require that all machinery and other products are designed and constructed to be safe, meeting all the relevant essential health and safety requirements, have a technical file compiled, have appropriate conformity markings and are correctly labelled with either the UKCA or CE mark. They must also be supplied with comprehensive instructions in English or assembly instructions in the case of partly completed machinery and these are accompanied by a declaration of conformity or in case of partly completed machinery, a declaration of incorporation. This conformity usually covers the initial period of use and subsequent use and maintenance is then covered by the approver and other regulations. Both the HSE and local trading standards enforce the provision and supply machinery safety regulations depending on the field of use in the equipment. The HSE leads where product is for use at work.
