scope:

This European Standard specifies the safety and hygiene requirements for the design and manufacture of vegetable cutting machines which are transportable and have a maximum rated power less than 3 kW.

This European Standard deals with machines intended for cutting, shredding, dicing, chipping and grating of food products in which the product passes through the machine.

As described in 3.2.1, the types of machines in the scope are machines with a fixed chamber and rotating blade or cutting disc, with a rotating drum and fixed blades or machines with horizontal reciprocating cutters (mainly used for potato chipping).

This European Standard specifies all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to vegetable cutting machines, when they are used as intended and under conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer (see Clause 4).

This European Standard deals with the hazards which can arise during commissioning, operation, cleaning, removal of food blockages, feeding, changing the tools, maintenance and decommissioning of the machine.

This European Standard does not apply to:

- food processors (see EN 12852);

- vegetable peelers (see EN 13208);

- vegetable cutting attachments which are mounted onto machines having an auxiliary drive hub (see EN 12851);

- planetary mixers (see EN 454);

- domestic machines.

This European Standard is not applicable to vegetable cutting machines which are manufactured before the date of its publication as EN.
