Our day-to-day lives involve the use of multiple machines and we do not realize that these machines, besides being extremely vital parts of our lives, can also be hazardous. There are many features that can make machines dangerous and lead to accidents. Using substandard parts, cheap materials, putting in insufficient effort into the research and development process, neglecting safety guidelines and overloading the machines, can be few of the multiple factors that can contribute to a technical failure and result in fatal accidents.</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>The Directive</strong></p> <p>To ensure safe and problem-free functioning of machines, the European Union has incorporated a directive called Machinery Directive, which states the safety standards for machines placed in the market or put in service in all member states.  This is done to ensure the machine’s freedom of movement within the European Union. It states that ‘member states shall not prohibit, restrict or impede the placing on the market or putting into service in their territory of machinery which complies with the directive.’</p> <p> </p> <p>Machinery Directive was first published in 1989 and was mandatory from 1st January 1995. Machinery directive comprises of two different directives, i.e.</p> <ul> <li><strong>Directive 91/368/EEC :-</strong>This directive states the scope of machinery directive to moving and lifting machinery (not involving people) and machinery with interchangeable equipment</li> </ul> <ul> <li><strong>Directive 93/44/EEC :- </strong>This directive states the safety standards for machinery used for lifting and movement of people and the safety components</li> </ul> <p> </p> <p><strong>Applicability</strong></p> <p>Machinery Directive was incorporated by European Union to specify the safety standards for machines used in public spaces and states the guidelines to be followed by manufacturers, dealers, importers and buyers before employing new machinery. This directive is applicable not only on the machinery, but also includes safety components, interchangeable parts, lifting accessories, removable mechanical transmission devices, chains, webbings, ropes and partly completed machinery. The machinery directive, however, does not apply on machines that are installed already or are already in the market.</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Objectives</strong></p> <p>Machinery directive has two main objectives, that is, to allow free movement of machinery within the internal market and to ensure optimum level of protection for health and safety of general masses.</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Consultancy Firms </strong></p> <p>Recital 26 in Machinery Directive states that the national authorities in charge of enforcement of the provisions of the Machinery Directive or the market surveillance authorities can impose appropriate penalties if the manufacturers, buyers, importers and dealers fail to imply with the standards set by the Machinery Directive. <a href="http://www.rye-enterprises.com/machinery-directive.htm"><b>Machinery Directive Consultancy</b></a> firms can help their clients to understand the directive in detail, thus enabling them to comply with it, in all their products. This not only helps the manufacturers to avoid heavy penalties and legal prosecution, but also to maintain their reputation in the market for a long time.</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Significance of Low Voltage Directive</strong></p> <p>Electrical appliances might have countless advantages, but it is a known fact, that they can be hazardous and threatening to health and property, if not employed carefully. To ensure that electrical appliances function smoothly, without posing a danger to the safety of people and their property, the European Union has set a standard of safety for electrical appliances. This standard is known as the Low Voltage Directive and there are numerous low voltage directive consultancy firms, which help companies with guidance in following the standards.</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>The Directive</strong></p> <p>The Low Voltage Directive is one of the oldest single market directives, which was first enacted on 1st June 1989, with the sole objective of providing common broad objectives for safety regulations. Low voltage directive is applicable on all electronic appliances, which fall in the working voltage, ranging between 50 to 1000 volts for alternating current, and 50 to 1500 volts in case of direct current.</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>What it ensures</strong></p> <p>The directive ensures that electronic equipment, approved by any European Union country is suitable for use in other European Union countries. The directive 2006/95/EC, as we know it today is a codified directive, which comprises texts from the original directive 73/23/EC and its amendments. Low voltage directive is the bench mark standard of safety observed by manufacturers, purchasers, trading standard officers and courtrooms throughout all countries, falling in the European Economic Area (EEA). The Low voltage directive does not include technical specifications or guidelines for designing and building requirements of products, but merely states the desired results from the products.</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Compliance facts</strong></p> <p>Any company failing to comply with the low voltage directive will be considered as disregarding many other acts and regulations including Act 1974, health and safety at work, low voltage equipment (safety) regulations 1989, Electrical equipment (safety) regulations 1994, Electricity at work regulations act 1989, Consumer Protection Act 1987, etc. This means non-compliance can lead to heavy penalties, and may even result in imprisonment. To avoid any such embarrassment in future, it is advisable to seek the advice of a competent consultancy firm, which possesses proper and exhaustive information about the act, and hence can offer optimum knowledge to their clients.</p> <p> </p> <p>These firms are capable of helping their clients with reconstruction and redesigning of products to match the standards, during the designing phase of the product. This helps in saving effort and costs involved with doing this at later stages.</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Role of consultancy firm</strong></p> <p>The key roles of a low voltage directive consultancy firms include:</p> <ul> <li>Assessing the safety requirements, analyzing the applicable directive(s)</li> </ul> <ul> <li>Calculating the print in a printed circuit box or PCB</li> </ul> <ul> <li>Guidance for the packing and internal structures</li> </ul> <ul> <li>Calculating the construction details</li> </ul> <ul> <li>Executing all the required tests and examinations</li> </ul> Machinery Directive Services Technical Consultancy http://www.rye-enterprises.com/blog/machinery-directive-services-technical-consultancy_3875.htm Thu, 28 Aug 2014 12:01:00 +0530 <p>Safety towards health and the environment is paramount while handling any machinery, whether small or large. Even the lift that you use multiple times every day has to be certified under what is known as Machinery Directive. In fact, all over the European Union member countries, any manufacturer hailing from any part of the world, wanting to sell their products, which come under the definition of the machinery directive, has to have the products certified under this directive before being imported into these countries or sold or put to use. If you have a manufacturing facility in Canada and wish to export your machinery product to any EU country, you will require the support of a <a href="http://www.rye-enterprises.com/machinery-directive.htm"><b>Machinery Directive Services</b></a> provider to guide you through the entire process.</p> <p><br />To start with, you will want the service provider to study your product to know if it does come under the provisions of the machinery directive. One has to know that practically every machinery will be covered under this. The broad definition says, a machinery which has moving parts and is connected to other components, meant for any particular function has to fall under the MD. Also an assemblage of machines, if they are arranged such that they perform the same function would also stand covered. However, still the experienced consultant will know the finer nuances and guide you through the designing of your products and in including the technical specifications as prescribed under the machinery directive.</p> <p> </p> <p>Once you have finished making the first batch of the machines or developed just the prototype, the Machinery Directive Services provider will depute their expert team to help with its inspection and will test to verify if the product measures up to the machinery directive or not. The following services can be expected from them:</p> <ul> <li><strong>Review of safety compliance: </strong>making an assessment of the design, choice of appropriate standards and cost-effective strategies towards compliance.</li> <li><strong>Testing  for assessment of the risks:</strong> Having the product tested on-site or sent to a laboratory assigned for testing and certifying the products, if they comply with the standards prescribed for employees’ and public safety.</li> <li><strong>Help in preparation of documents:</strong> Preparation of assessment reports, technical dossiers and other paperwork needed for the demonstration of the conformity of the product to the Machinery Directive.</li> <li><strong>Technical consultancy and advice: </strong>In submitting proper advice to clients on anticipated safety hazards and how to avoid them and other issues of compliance. </li> </ul> <p> </p> <p>If your search leads you to a service provider who can  assure you all the above, you have the right one, and you should go ahead and engage him or her.</p> Low Voltage Directive Services Reliable Support http://www.rye-enterprises.com/blog/low-voltage-directive-services-reliable-support_3876.htm Thu, 28 Aug 2014 12:04:35 +0530 <p>If you are into manufacturing, consumer products or electrical goods, which operate in the voltage range of 50 to 1000 volts of AC current or 75 to 1500 volt of DC current, then you will need to have your product certified as conforming to the Low Voltage Directive (LVD) in conformity with the applicable standards internationally and also in the specific domestic market you might be selling your products in. You will need the support of a Low Voltage Directive Services provider to help you obtain this certification from the designated authorities.</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>List of Equipments Covered by LVD</strong></p> <p>The broad category or list of equipments which fall within the scope of the LVD requirement can be as below:</p> <ul> <li>All electrical appliances</li> </ul> <ul> <li>Equipments meant for lighting purposes, including ballasts,</li> </ul> <ul> <li>Electrical wires and products for similar applications  </li> </ul> <ul> <li>Switch gear and control gear,</li> </ul> <ul> <li>Equipments which form part of electrical installations, etc.</li> </ul> <ul> <li>Equipments such as transformers and motors which go into larger equipments and so on.</li> </ul> <p> </p> <p><strong>The Objectives and Directives</strong></p> <p>The primary objective of the governments enforcing these Low Voltage Directives is to ensure the safety of the citizens who use these products in their homes or workplaces. So the equipments being manufactured and marketed either within the country or exported have to be free from the risks. In defining these risks, the Low Voltage Directive lay down 11 different risks or ‘safety objectives,’ which need to be met. These risks will not only encompass the electrical but also mechanical and chemical (if the equipments are capable of emitting any harmful substances) and so on. The aspects of noise and vibrations caused by these equipments will also be governed by the Directive. Even the emission of an electro- magnetic field will fall in the scope of the 11 risks under the LVD. If your products are being exported to the European Union countries, there is no way you can sell your products there without the Low Voltage Directive certification.</p> <p> </p> <p>The <a href="http://www.rye-enterprises.com/low-voltage-directive.htm"><b>Low Voltage Directive Services</b></a> providers in Canada will assist you in the process of not only ensuring that the designing of your products conform to the standards, both the harmonized international standards and country-specific  requirements, but also assist in obtaining the certification from the designated authorities in Canada.</p> <p> </p> <p>These service providers have much experience in handling such issues. They know how to complete the formalities while demonstrating your products to the authorities and make sure that the entire process is very smoothly conducted.</p> Machinery Directive Consultants - Partners in Progress http://www.rye-enterprises.com/blog/machinery-directive-consultants-partners-in-progress_4053.htm Mon, 29 Sep 2014 17:03:54 +0530 Machinery Directives represent the technical parameters that equipments and machines have to comply with, before they are sold in the market or put to use. These directives are specifically strict in Europe, where the European Union has prescribed stringent directives to be followed before such machinery gets imported into any of the EU member countries. You will therefore need a professional Machinery Directive Consultant, to help you with getting your machinery products certified before you can sell or export them.<br /><br /><strong>Why Such Directives - The Background</strong><br />The reason these directives are introduced and implemented is to make sure that the manufacturers do not make any compromises in the safety of the machinery. While electrical equipments have a separate Low Voltage Directive with 11 different safety clauses, the machinery directives go beyond the electrical parameters on to the mechanical, electromechanical, noise related and other risks that the machinery could pose to the employees who are engaged in operating this machinery and the public at large who might have anything to do while the machinery is under operation.  <br /><br /> The best <a href="http://www.rye-enterprises.com/machinery-directive.htm"><b>Machinery Directive Consultant</b></a> would be the one who has immense experience in handling similar assignments in auditing the technical specifications of the equipments on the design stage itself. He must be able to suggest modifications to pass muster at the certification level and enlighten the manufacturer on the complete requirements imposed under the Machinery Directives. Besides knowing the aspects that should be incorporated in the machinery, the consultant should also be thorough with what should be avoided and the ramifications of not adhering to the machinery directive.<br /> <br />If you have such a manufacturing unit in Canada, and you manufacture and market machinery of any variety, which attracts the provisions of the machinery directive, then you should search the Internet to locate the ideal agency that handles the task of getting your products certified. The consultant would then do a thorough audit of the design specifications of your product. Their professionally qualified and experienced team of engineers will then work with your staff through the process of building the prototype and in conducting the tests which are necessary for your products to be eligible for certification under the machinery directive. They will also be familiar with the certification formalities.<br /><br />Once the consultant helps you obtain the certification, you can go ahead and launch your products in Canada, Europe or any other major market in the world. If your products are good in quality, there is no reason why you cannot succeed.

It is important for such products to carry the CSA mark which is internationally recognised, and apart from this, it becomes fairly easy for the manufacturer to introduce his/her products in both Canada and US markets. In short, it is the sign of safety and quality. By availing oneself of the CSA mark, one can get their services and products tested, and then certified. This in turn ensures that they meet the quality standards of both the US and Canada. With a <a href="http://www.rye-enterprises.com/csa-registration.htm"><strong>CSA Registration in Canada</strong></a> there will be no need for any duplicate testing and one will be able to save precious time and money. Those who are involved in CSA services have a panel of CSA consultants who test the products as per US and Canadian standards. After the product and service passes the test, CSA mark is issued for any qualified product.</p> <p><br /><strong>Promotion of effective standardisation in Canada</strong><br />The Canadian Standards Association, or CSA, is a non-profit organisation that develops standards in nearly 57 areas. It is responsible for publishing standards in electronic form or print, and also offers necessary training and advisory services. It is comprised of representatives from government, consumer products groups, and industry groups. This team’s entire focus is the promotion of effective standardisation of products in Canada. Because of this, it is addressed as either the Standards Development Body or the Certification Body. It is accredited to carry out the verification function that is based on recognised procedures and criteria on a global basis. The powerful CSA mark shows that the product has been independently tested to meet the recognised global safety standards and performance.</p> <p><br /><strong>What are the products on which CSA offers its mark?</strong><br />CSA strives to develop the standard. One can find its mark over the products of 57 distinct areas. Its mark can be seen on electronic and electrical equipment, boilers, pressure vessels, industrial equipment, gas handling compressed appliances, construction materials, and environmental protection materials. After the product acquires the mark, there is no need for any further law to govern its usage as only a licensed authority can apply the CSA mark after proper testing of the product. A product with CSA mark can be used for industrial or any other purpose.</p> <p><br />The concept of CSA is as old as World War I when great injuries with technical resources due to lack of interoperability occurred. It caused injuries, death and great frustration and then Britain requested Canada to formulate a standard committee.</p> Security a Provincial CRN registration http://www.rye-enterprises.com/blog/security-a-provincial-crn-registration_4586.htm Wed, 24 Dec 2014 13:09:53 +0530 <p>A CRN number implies that a Canadian Registration Number has been issued by a Canadian jurisdiction authority to pressure vessels, pressure piping, boilers, and fittings. It is a necessary authorisation that allows the various types components that are normally used with extreme pressure to be used freely in Canada. A <a href="http://www.rye-enterprises.com/crn-registration.htm"><b>Provincial CRN registration</b></a> number is the number that has been issued by the province or Canadian territory such pressure vessels and boilers. The manufacturer of these items first needs to design and plan the pattern of vessel or boiler with relevant specifications, drawings, test data and calculations. The owner of the pressure vessel or boiler must also ensure that the container is maintained in the safest working conditions and is handled carefully.</p> <p><br /><strong>The design registration requirements of industrial and other equipment</strong></p> <ul> <li>The design of high-pressure vessels and boilers must be registered prior to the manufacture and usage of such. It must be registered with the director.</li> <li>No person should start making use of such equipment unless he or she has considered all the risks related to such items.</li> <li>Pressure vessels or boilers must display the seal or signature of the experienced, professional engineer who was involved in designing them.</li> <li>Design registration can be cancelled even after it has been issued if the inspector finds a defect in the equipment under subsection (5). </li> <li>If the unused boiler or pressure vessel has already been manufactured but its specification and design has not been registered, the director may inspect it carefully and, if it passes the inspection, issue inspection certificate.</li> </ul> <p><strong>What happens in case unsafe condition for operation of boiler or pressure vessel is detected?</strong><br />If it is found that the boiler or pressure vessel is being operated in an unsafe working or operation condition, then the inspector or insurer will send notification of this fact to the director stating that the industrial equipment is operated in dangerous manner. The director will then take all necessary steps along with the inspector to remove potential dangers.</p> <p><br /><strong>Provincial CRN registration of pressure vessels</strong><br />The person or manufacturer wishing to manufacture and sell a boiler, pressure piping system, or pressure vessel is required to submit the specifications and designs of the equipment. All the details about the equipment go for review before that the product receives its registration. Design surveyors then conduct an independent survey of the design in order to verify whether it meets the requirements for registration or not. Getting approval for the installation of a boiler from the Government authority may be a tough task as there are several dangers that are associated with the working of boilers.</p> Why is the CRN registration for pressure fitting necessary? http://www.rye-enterprises.com/blog/why-is-the-crn-registration-for-pressure-fitting-necessary_4903.htm Wed, 04 Mar 2015 16:53:25 +0530 <p>Pressure fittings have tremendous applications in electrical conduit systems and plumbing, for is what helps to join thin walled pipes and tubes. Places where two pipes are required to be joined together, but are comprised of different materials; require that the fittings be composed of compatible material that is suitable for connection. Such pressure fittings have ferrules in them. Hot water taps and cold-water faucets that are regularly under high pressure need good pressure fittings. Such fittings are normally located at confined spaces where it is difficult to solder copper pipe. Pressure fittings are small devices that either stand-alone or are attached to vessels and piping. In most of the countries, there is no need to register pressure fittings, but the Canadian B51 code, which is based on the CRN system, necessitates the need for CRN registration. The Canadian CRN system is more inclusive and more restrictive, and so there is the need to register even the smallest fitting. Proponents of the law insist that the CRN registration for pressure fitting code ensures public safety.</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Classifications of fittings as per the registration needs</strong><br />Fittings are broken down in various categories and then the registration need is assessed. A manufacturer of several fittings is required to apply separately for each category of fitting as per varied statutory declarations. Unfortunately, in this way the registration cost increases. Because of this, Saskatchewan has declared such registration processes as utter waste of time and registrations in categories such as A, B, C, G is not required any more. Pipe fittings, elbows, wyes, pipe caps, reducers, nipples, and couplings are included in category A. However, expansion joints, hose assemblies, flexible connections, filters, separators, strainers, steam taps, pressure gauges, sight glasses, pressure transmitters and other measuring devices still require CRN registration. All pressure-retaining components have to be registered. Moreover, parts such as elbows, couplings and identical flanges must be inspected by and authorised inspector.</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>What category of pressure fittings do not require CRN?</strong></p> <p>Fittings that are not attached to vessels or piping do not always require a CRN. A medical autoclave, for example, that is not attached to a piping system does not require a CRN most of the time. However, in some provinces even those also need to have a CRN. It is necessary for a manufacture to determine whether the fitting requires a CRN or not. The CRN is generally used as an effective marketing tool and because of this; non-registered competitors apply for registration of their fittings even when there is no need for them to be registered. The reason being: customers understand that fittings that have secured a CRN registration are safe and sturdy. Non-registered fittings are seen as possibly untrustworthy. Because of this, getting the pressure fittings registered is easier than handling the uncertainty of customers. The CRN ensures public safety and so an inspector is likely to ask for CRN whenever he/she feels like.</p> Everything You Wanted To Know About CRN Registration For Boilers Pressure Vessels Fitting or Piping http://www.rye-enterprises.com/blog/everything-you-wanted-to-know-about-crn-registration-for-boilers-pressure-vessels-fitting-or-piping_5169.htm Mon, 27 Apr 2015 10:34:33 +0530 <p style="text-align: justify;">The design for boilers, heat exchangers, pressure coils, pressure vessels, etc has to obtain CRN (Canadian Registration Number) before being installed in Canada. It is a number issued by each province in Canada. The <a href="http://www.rye-enterprises.com/crn-registration-for-boiler.htm">CRN Registration For Boiler</a> signifies that the boiler’s design has been approved and registered for use in that province or territory. Understanding a boiler is a tough and complicated job in itself and it is even more complex to understand if a particular boiler requires CRN. In order to help designer in this complex procedure, many companies offer CRN Registration For Boiler services. Read on to find out more about CRN.<br /><br /><strong>What is CRN?</strong><br />As mentioned above CRN is a number issued by authorities in Canada when they accept and register a boiler design. It comprises of letters, four digits and decimal points digits (maximum 10) and two letters. In the CRN, the first and four digits is the sequential numbering system followed in different provinces.
