This document, to be used together with EN 1009-1, specifies the safety requirements and their verification for the design and construction of feeding machinery and continuous handling equipment for the mechanical processing in quarrying, recycling and processing mineral and by-products. In addition, it specifies the specific information (including residual risks) to be provided by the manufacturer.
When requirements of this document are different from those which are stated in EN 1009-1:2020, the requirements of this part of EN 1009 take precedence over the requirements of EN 1009-1:2020 for machines that have been designed and built according to the provisions of this document.
This document, together with EN 1009-1:2020, deals with all the significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to feeding machinery when they are used as intended and under the conditions foreseen by the manufacturer (see Annex C).
This document does not cover:
- design relating to road traffic regulations;
- hazards arising from the use of the machines in potentially explosive atmospheres as well as from processing of explosive materials and risks related to electromagnetic compatibility;
- specific hazards related to mobile machinery.
NOTE 1 EN ISO 13766-1 and EN ISO 13766-2 specify test methods and acceptance criteria for evaluating the electromagnetic compatibility of all kinds of mobile construction machinery.
NOTE 2 prEN 1009-6 "Specific requirements for mobile and semi mobile equipment" is under preparation to cover specific requirements (e.g. mobility, braking, access, frequent transportation), including exceptions and additional requirements for mobile and semi mobile equipment. This means that mobile machines are not covered as long as EN 1009-6 is not published by CEN.
This document is not applicable to feeding machinery and continuous handling equipment which are manufactured before the date of publication of this document by CEN.
