BS EN ISO 11553-1:2008 Safety of machinery. Laser processing machines. General safety requirements

The Machinery Safety Directive issued by the Council of the EEC outlines essential and mandatory requirements that must be met in order to ensure that machinery is safe. In response, CEN/CENELEC initiated a programme to produce safety standards for machines and their applications.

BS EN ISO 11553-1:2008 has been prepared as a harmonized standard to provide a means of conforming with the essential safety requirements of the Machinery Directive and associated EFTA Regulations.

BS EN ISO 11553-1 describes hazards generated by laser processing machines, and specifies the safety requirements relating to radiation hazards and hazards generated by materials and substances. It also specifies the information to be supplied by the manufacturers of such equipment.

BS EN ISO 11553-1 is applicable to machines using laser radiation to process materials. Its purpose is to prevent injuries to persons by:

  • listing potential hazards generated by machines containing lasers
  • specifying safety measures and verifications necessary for reducing the risk caused by specific hazardous conditions
  • providing references to pertinent standards
  • specifying the information which is to be supplied to the users so that they can establish properprocedures and precautions.

BS EN ISO 11553-1:2008 supersedes BS EN ISO 11553-1:2005 which is withdrawn.
