BS EN ISO 19085-11:2020

Woodworking machines. Safety. Combined machines

Status : Current   Published : April 2020



This document gives the safety requirements and measures for stationary and displaceable combined woodworking machines, having at least two separately usable working units and with manual loading and unloading of the workpiece, hereinafter referred to as “ machines”. The integrated working units can be of these types only:

  • a sawing unit;

  • a moulding unit;

  • a planing unit.

The machines are designed to cut solid wood and material with similar physical characteristics to wood.


For the definitions of stationary and displaceable machines, see ISO 19085-1:2017, 3.4 and 3.5.

This document deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events as listed in Clause 4, relevant to the machines, when operated, adjusted and maintained as intended and under the conditions foreseen by the manufacturer including reasonably foreseeable misuse. Also, transport, assembly, dismantling, disabling and scrapping phases have been taken into account.


For relevant but not significant hazards, e.g. sharp edges of the machine frame, see ISO 12100:2010 .

This document does apply to machines also equipped with the devices/additional working units listed in the Scopes of ISO 19085-5:2017, ISO 19085-6:2017, ISO 19085-7:2019 and ISO 19085-9:2019.

This document does not apply to:

  1. machines incorporating only a planing unit and a mortising device;

    NOTE 3

    Such machines are dealt with in ISO 19085-7:2019 .

  2. combined machines incorporating a band saw unit;

  3. machines with a mortising unit with a separate drive other than the planing unit drive;

  4. machines intended for use in potentially explosive atmosphere;

  5. machines manufactured before the date of its publication as an International Standard.
