To enable the European Union to trade successfully across boundaries, the European Commission embarked on a policy of harmonisation. Introducing the New Approach Directives (CE Directives). These Directives are not prescriptive and lay down minimum criteria for compliance. The New Approach Directives are similar in format for ease of reference and use. Perhaps the most significant aspect of the new legislation is the conformity assessment procedure (the means by which the compliance is ensured). The Directives offer a flexible approach. All machines supplied in the European Economic Area (EEA) from January 1st 1995, must comply with the Machinery Directive and be safe. There is little exclusion to the Directive making this one of the most significant of all the New Approach Directives.
