The Technical Regulation TR CU 010/2011 On safety of machinery and equipment stipulates minimum requirements for the safety of machinery and equipment during their entire lifecycle: during their design, manufacture, installation, storage, transport, commissioning, operation, decommissioning, and disposal. The focus is on protecting life, health, property and the environment.
Compliance with the requirements of the technical regulation TR CU 010/2011 On safety of machinery and equipment is a prerequisite for successful access to the Russian and Eurasian market.
Although the requirements of the Technical Regulation TR CU 010/2011 have been coordinated with the requirements of the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC, they are not identical.
