Today, on Wed. April 29th, The VDMA of Germany has published a circulate to inform the members about the new ISO regulations for injection moulding machines. The complete text is published hereinafter:
In April 2020, ISO 20430 for injection moulding machines, the first international safety standard for plastics and rubber machinery, was published, providing machine manufacturers with a globally uniform standard – ISO comprises 121 member countries.
About 40 experts from machine manufacturers, associations and health and safety organizations from 13 countries participated in the project. The convenorship and secretariat were held in Germany and were taken over by the staff of VDMA Plastics and Rubber Machinery. The existing European standard EN 201 served as a basis.
“Even though the project took more than seven years, longer than expected, it was worth the effort to bring together the various existing national and regional standards and, at the same time, to reflect the current state of the art “, summarize the Convenor Bernd Nötel and the project manager Dr. Harald Weber.
The EN ISO version of the standard, which creates the link to the European Machinery Directive with the additional annex ZA, will be published within the next few months.
