Front page of the checklist

IEC 60204-1 (2016) "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.
