kuiper certificering offers certification of machinery that is listed in Annex IV of the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC. We are accredited for conducting EC type-examinations of machinery (Annex IX) in our accredited categories for CE marking.
The manufacturer applies to kuiper certificering for certification of Annex IV machinery by EC type-examination. We review the application and, if satisfactory, issue a quotation for the work.
The manufacturer places an order for the work and signs a certification agreement. The technical file is sent to kuiper certificering and the manufacturer makes a sample of the machinery available for examination.
kuiper certificering reviews the technical file, examines the machinery and checks the machinery against the technical file. Any non-conformances are reported to the manufacturer.
If non-conformances are successfully resolved, kuiper certificering issues an EC type-examination certificate for the machinery. The manufacturer draws up the Declaration of Conformity and affixes the CE mark to the machinery.
If applied for, and if certain conditions are met, a type-examination certificate for UKCA marking may be issued through our sister company amtri veritas based on the same evaluation.
