European Standard





Language in which you want to receive the document


This European Standard specifies a room method for the measurement of the pollutant concentration parameter of a specified airborne hazardous substance from machines, located in a test room and operating the machines under defined conditions.
This method can only be used for machines with a local exhaust ventilation with an air flow rate ³ 500 m3/h and machines without recirculated air.
Measurement of the pollutant concentration parameter of a machine can serve for the:
a) evaluation of the performance of a machine;
b) evaluation of the improvement of the machine;
c) comparison of machines within groups of machines with the same intended use (groups are defined by the function and materials processed);
d) ranking of machines from the same group according to their pollutant concentration parameters;
e) determination of the state of the art of machines with respect to their pollutant concentration parameter.

Directives and Regulations

When the standard is harmonized under a directive or regulation, the word Harmonized appear. When such an inscription does not appear, it means that the standard is related to / supporting the relevant directive or regulation.




Directive 2006/42/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 May 2006 on machinery, and amending Directive 95/16/EC (recast)
