An estimated amount of 20 to 30 per cent of all excavators which were offered at the auction on construction and agricultural machinery in Dormagen on February 20th and 21st did not meet the basic safety requirements laid out in European regulations.

Many machines do not comply with EU safety standards. VDMA for strengthening the monitoring of the market. Customers often are not aware of the problems that might occur.

Many machines do not comply with EU safety standards:
Often it is not known to the clients at all what consequences using and bringing into circulation such machines in Europe can have.

But Mr Réne Kampmeier, technology expert with the German Engineering Federation (VDMA) knows „The fact you did not know anything about it, is no excuse."

Mr Kampmeier went to Dormagen together with his colleague Mr Malcom Kent of the British Construction Equipment Association (CEA) to see for themselves what quality the construction machinery offered there were.

His conclusion: especially when it comes to auctions, new and used construction machinery is imported into Germany in large numbers which are not really designed for an import into the European single market.

And this is because they either have unauthorised CE marking or none at all and with this do not comply with the health and safety requirements laid out in European Directives such as the Machinery Directive, for instance. For example, there were machines on display, where the hose burst protection valve was missing.

VDMA for strengthening the monitoring of the market:
With some of the machinery offered in Dormagen, these deficits were very obvious: CE marking was missing entirely or had been affixed only poorly.

Other devices did have CE marking, but the required EC-Declaration of Conformity which goes with it had not been issued. „Having the CE marking does not necessarily also mean being in accordance with law", Mr Kampmeier says.
