EN 60204-1 (2006), "Safety of machinery – Electrical equipment of machines – General requirements" is a harmonized (Type B) European standard pursuant to the Machinery Directive. Based upon this standard, the IFA – Institute for Occupational Safety and Health of the DGUV has drawn up a checklist with the aid of which the electrical equipment of machines can be tested in a suitable sequence. Since each test phase refers to the relevant section of the standard, the checklist is also useful for users who do not use the standard on a daily basis.
