BS EN 415-5:2006+A1:2009

Safety of packaging machines. Wrapping machines

Status : Current, Under review   Published : September 2006



BS EN 415-5:2006 deals with safety requirements for machine design, construction, installation, commissioning, operation, adjustment, maintenance and cleaning of wrapping machines.

Wrapping machines are used extensively in Europe, in an increasingly wide range of industries. They contain several significant hazards and have the potential to cause serious injury.

The machinery concerned and the extent to which hazards, hazardous situations and events are covered are indicated in the scope of this standard.

The extent to which hazards, hazardous situations and events are covered are indicated under ‘Exclusions’ in this document.

When provisions of this type C standard are different from those which are stated in type A or B standards, the provisions of this type C standard take precedence.

This European Standard applies to the following groups of machines:

  • Wrapping machines which partially wrap products
  • Wrapping machines which form a complete wrap without sealing
  • Wrapping machines which form a complete wrap with sealing
  • Shrinking equipment which is connected to wrapping machines covered by this standard
  • The individual machines are described in 3.2 of this standard.

This standard is not applicable to larger examples of wrapping machines designed to handle products higher than 400 mm and wider than 400 mm. These machines are covered by EN 415-6.

This document is not applicable to wrapping machines which are manufactured before the date of publication of this document by CEN.

This standard does not consider the following hazards:

  • Use of wrapping machines in potentially explosive atmospheres
  • Health, safety or hygiene hazards associated with the products that may be handled by the machines but does include general advice on this subject
  • Hazards that may be associated with electromagnetic emissions from wrapping machines
  • Hazards that may be associated with decommissioning wrapping machines.
