Norm compliant documentation

Every manufacturer is obliged by the directive 2006/42/EC (Machinery Directive), which has been in force since 2010, to prepare technical documentation for their product. The structure and content of the documentation are subject to clear guidelines from the legislator.

The requirements for the technical documentation are often underestimated, although especially in the case of product liability, “norm compliant ” documentation is indispensable as proof of the entrepreneurial fulfilment of obligations. The consequences may include an EU-wide sales ban, expensive recall campaigns and, last but not least, criminal prosecution in the event of personal injury.

With the introduction of the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC, some requirements for technical documentation have also been amended.

Does your company produce norm compliant technical documentation in accordance with the latest directives? Do you want to ensure that your technical documents comply with the latest legal requirements?


We check your documentation with regard to:

  • Legal requirements
  • Current standards
  • Terminology – sentence structure and style
  • Expressiveness of the graphic representations
  • Layout

We also check product-specific directives (e.g. medical devices, software, …) for compliance with the requirements of:- Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC- Product Liability Directive 85/374/EEC- Product Safety Directive 2001/95/EC- Low Voltage Directive 2006/95/EC- EMC Directive 2004/108/EC- Pressure Equipment Directive 2014/68/EU



The free documentation check small checks your documentation of up to 30 pages (also in extracts) and written in German language for external features such as:

  • Terminology
  • Sentence Structure and Style
