Introduction

Background

European Directive 2006/42/EC on machinery 'The Directive' came into force on 29 June 2006 within the European Union replacing European Directive 1998/37/EC. The provisions of the new Directive became applicable on 29th December 2009. The Directive contains guidelines on the design and construction of machines and lifting accessories which Member States have been required to transpose into national law.

This Publication was originally produced by the Engineering Equipment & Materials Users' Association, in the absence of any known international or national standard on the design of lifting points for plant and has been revised taking into consideration the Directive. This Publication supplements the documents listed under Section 2.1 Legislation and Regulatory Guidance which were produced by the UK Government when complying with the European Directive 1998/37/EC.

Lifting points are provided to facilitate lifting and handling of plant for installation/removal, maintenance and dismantling. The provision of adequate means for lifting is important for safe and efficient handling and to minimise risk of injury and damage.
