Guide: Chinese enterprises are exporting more and more products to the EU, and China has replaced the United States as the largest trading partner of the EU since 2006. However, in recent years, for various reasons, the EU has increased the supervision of China's export products, which is mainly reflected in the new EU machinery products directive officially implemented at the end of last year

the products exported by Chinese enterprises to the EU are increasing day by day. China has replaced the United States as the largest trading partner of the EU since 2006. However, in recent years, for various reasons, the EU has increased its supervision over China's export products, which is mainly reflected in the new EU machinery products directive officially implemented at the end of last year

the EU stipulates that all machinery and safety components within the scope of the machinery directive must be assessed by appropriate compliance review procedures before they can be legally put on the EU market. The machinery directive has been amended three times. The new machinery directive 2006/42/ec has been implemented since December 29, 2009, replacing the original machinery directive 98/37/ec

the new directive contains some new requirements and changes. China's machinery export enterprises cannot adapt and follow up in time, resulting in many products unable to enter the EU market, causing a lot of losses. It has to be said that this is a very severe test for China's machinery enterprises

the main products covered by the new machinery directive include agricultural machinery (such as tractors), food machinery (such as blenders), hand-held machinery (such as hand-held grinders), electric tools (such as scrapers), machine tools, elevators, etc. Compared with the old directive, the new directive has some new requirements and obvious changes in the scope of application, the boundary with other guiding decrees, market supervision, safety components, basic health and safety requirements, conformity assessment procedures, etc

the certification and accreditation Technology Institute (CCAI) of the national certification and accreditation administration believes that China's export of machinery products to the European Union is hindered by two reasons: first, many machinery export enterprises (including testing institutions) do not really understand the requirements of the European Union on the new machinery directive; Second, many enterprises ask intermediary agencies for consultation and certification, but these intermediary agencies themselves fail to really understand the requirements of the EU, so that many CE certified products are also blocked in the EU

therefore, in order to reduce export barriers and avoid trade risks, machinery enterprises and relevant institutions should pay attention to the new directive and actively respond from the perspective of practical application and technology. Enterprises and testing institutions should carefully interpret the new instructions, analyze the differences between the new and old instructions, and truly understand the internal requirements of the new instructions; Enterprises should timely evaluate the size of the investment scope and review their own products. If necessary, they should rectify the products and technical documents to meet the requirements of the new directive
