CEN/TC 146 Packaging machines - Safety

European Norm

01.040.55   Packaging and distribution of goods (Vocabularies) | 55.200   Packaging machinery


This European standard defines the field of packaging machines in detail in clause 3, but briefly these are:
Filling and Dosing machines
Closing machines
Labelling, decorating and coding machines
Cleaning, sterilising, cooling and drying machines
Fill and seal machines
Inspection machines
Container and component handling machines
Form, fill and seal machines
Cartoning machines
Wrapping machines
Group or transit packaging machines
Pallet or loading unit forming, dismantling and securing machines
Annex A indicates where hazards and safety requirements for these machines can be found. In most cases this will be in one of the parts of EN415, but in some cases it may be another European or ISO standard. Where no specific standard covers a particular machine Annex A will indicate the most appropriate standard which can be referred to for advice.
