Compliance of ROBOTS and ROBOT SYSTEMS
The human centered safety-, functional-, collaboration- and cybersecurity conformity assessment of robots and robot systems is a positive constraint: the automation of industrial manufacturing and logistics systems, the introduction of robots, the strive for robotization in households and in healthcare applications imply both due challenges and chances.
The human centered safety-, functional-, collaboration- and cybersecurity conformity assessment of robots and robot systems is a positive constraint: the automation of industrial manufacturing and logistics systems, the introduction of robots, the strive for robotization in households and in healthcare applications imply both due challenges and chances. The relevant authorities, the regulators, the standardization organizations and the Testing, Inspection and Certification (TIC) professionals have been defining many usability and safety requirements. Our experts assess the conformity versus those: efficiently, risk based, in possession of our wide portfolio of qualifications and professional instruments, meeting this complex demand.
You can focus on creating and using your robot systems while we take care of their conformity and safety and takeover your manufacturer’s responsibility as your representative.
Challenges in the EU market:
The compliance with the requirements (CE-marking) of market placement of robots, robot systems and components is mandatory. Without this the distribution is prohibited and the users cannot install and put them into operation.
• To put robots and robot systems on the market, you need to comply with CE marking requirements. Without this the distribution is prohibited and your customers will not be able to install them and put them into operation.
• Many industrial robots are so called "partially completed machines", the operation of which can only be started after the CE marking of a completed robot system is obtanied.
• Following the integration of robots and other equipment and components a new complex machine, a robot system is created, which is also subject of CE marking.
• In certain cases the involvement of Notified Bodies (NoBo's) is mandatory to the CE marking,in other cases the manufacturer can act on their own.
• The manufacturer of robots and robot systems must meet and certify the mandated safety requirements to be able to put them into operation.
• The operator must perform periodical safety inspections during the operation of the industrial robot systems.
• Modifications of the robot systems typically require a repeated performance of the CE marking procedure, moreover, in order to continue with the operation a health and safety review is needed.
• Manufacturers of robots, robot systems and components
• Distributors or importers of robots, robot systems and components
• Integrators (installers)
• Users (operators)
• Market surveillance and labor safety authorities
