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 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.
