      This leaflet is aimed at companies that manufacture presses. It provides an overview of the type-C standards within the EN ISO 16092 series of standards. These contain detailed safety requirements and protective measures for ensuring the safety of presses.

      Any company marketing a press must be able to prove compliance with the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC and any further provisions.

      The common requirements for presses are described in the EN ISO 16092-1 standard «Presses - Part 1:General Safety Requirements». Depending on how the press is driven (mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic), the requirements of parts 2, 3 or 4 of the EN ISO 16092 series of standards must also be observed.

      The leaflet lists the areas of application for each of these standards, as well as examples and an overview of model-specific safety requirements.
