Navigating the new Machinery Regulation

29 May 2024

The EU Machinery Regulation (EU) 2023/1230 was published in the EU Official Journal on 29 June 2023 and will replace the current Machinery Directive (Directive 2006/42/EC).

The UK Government has announced that CE marking for machinery will be extended indefinitely beyond 2024. This means that from 20 January 2027, CE-marked products in the UK will also need to comply with the EU regulations. At the point of writing this article, no announcement has been made if UK regulations will be updated to align UKCA requirements with the EU, but it can be assumed that any UKNI+CE marking must align with the new EU regulation. 

The new regulation introduces more concrete machinery safety provisions that are a legal requirement for machinery manufacturers and other economic operators. This gives machinery end users more legal certainty by defining binding requirements imposed on the design, construction and placing, into operation of machinery and related products.
