Major changes – in-house manufacture – radio equipment

Business Brunch with Philipp Reusch in Düsseldorf on 23 February 2018 

The Operational Safety Regulation and the interpretation paper on major changes have brought changes for machine manufacturers and operators. Since 2017, furthermore, the Radio Equipment Act (FuAG) has forced these developments along. And the questions which were already occupying the industry anyway continue to be long-running issues:

  • major changes regarding the modification and update of software
  • commissioning, test run, trial operation on customer's premises
  • demarcation to consumer products and migration products
  • in-house construction and use / subsequent declaration of conformity
  • conformity assessment by service providers – effects on responsibility and liability
  • methods of market surveillance authorities
  • the new DIN ISO 13850
  • typical errors in inspections based on DIN EN 60204-1

We would like to discuss these and other topics with you, together with our cooperation partner DEKRA, at our Business Brunch in Düsseldorf on 23 February 2018.
