Visitors will have the opportunity to attend a free legislation update from machinery safety specialist Laidler Associates, a division of TÜV SÜD Product Service, which will highlight the impact of the Machinery Directive on machine manufacturers and end-users.

The presentation will be delivered by Paul Laidler who heads up TÜV SÜD Product Service’s UK machinery division and include details on how new technology is now driving the evolution of the Machinery Directive.

“The topic of how the Machinery Directive affects manufacturers and end-users is made even more important with the constant and frequent introduction of new technology,” comments Paul Laidler. “Couple this with the fact that there is still a huge of amount of confusion and a grave lack of knowledge surrounding the Directive and it is clear that there is the need for further education”.
