You want to put a machine on the market but you are not sure of its conformity?  

Do you have a machine that you want to modify, move, improve, but you don't have the resources to take care of security?

Säfeli is your partner in machine safety. Whether you are a manufacturer or a user, we will be able to help you to guarantee the safety of your machines.


To place a machine on the European market, machine manufacturers must affix the CE mark to it.

The CE marking certifies that the machine complies with the applicable European directives.

In Switzerland, it is not compulsory  to affix the CE marking to place a machine on the market. On the other hand, the machine must still have a declaration of conformity.

Whether your machine is marketed in Europe or Switzerland, it must always be accompanied by its declaration of conformity.

The declaration of conformity, like the CE marking, certifies that the manufacturer has complied with European directives.

The declaration must include information on the manufacturer, the machine, as well as the directives and standards used.

Beyond the declaration itself, it is a whole technical file which must prove the conformity of the machine.



One of the most important directives for machine manufacturers is the Machinery Directive.

This directive guides manufacturers in the way of designing machines presenting  minimum risk to the user through essential health and safety requirements.

The Machinery Directive enables standards to be harmonized throughout Europe, which simplifies access to this market.

In addition to the machinery directive, there is the low voltage directive as well as the directive on electromagnetic compatibility for machines containing electrical or electronic components.


Whether you are a machine manufacturer for  to be used in an ATEX environment or if your company presents some of these situations:

  • Use  and storage of liquids  flammable

  • Gas use and storage

  • Paint station

  • Dust  flammable

We are here to advise you and support you in your ATEX projects.



Each machine has its own risks. This is why it is essential to carry out a risk analysis in order to determine the dangerous parts of the machine and to proceed with the reduction of the risks.

The ISO 12100:2010 standard guides us in this process and allows us to assess the situation regarding the safety of a machine.



As the user of your machine, it is your responsibility to ensure the compliance of your machines in the event of movement, modification or improvement.

Indeed, modifying a machine or moving it to a new environment  may generate new risks that must be analysed.

It is also possible to carry out compliance upgrades on older machines in order to update their security.
