Notified bodies

Notified bodies -alasivu

The Finnish Government Decree on the Safety of Machinery includes a list of types of machinery that must undergo EC type examination. EC type examination can only be carried out by what are called “notified bodies”, organisations certified to carry out EC type examination in one of the Member States of the EU. Finland has designated a number of notified bodies to carry out inspections on machinery governed by the Machinery Directive and communicated their contact details to the European Commission.

Public authorities cannot carry out EC type examination but they are responsible for ensuring the continued competence of notified bodies. The authorities also perform checks to verify the regulatory compliance of machinery in places of work and at points of sale and ensure that all necessary type examinations are carried out.
