Machinery for mining, quarrying, construction equipment 

This subsector comprises six CEN Technical bodies, the biggest of which is CEN/TC 151 'Construction equipment and building material machines – Safety', which carries out the standardization activities in the field of safety of machines and equipment used on construction sites, for winter service and highway maintenance, as well as for the production and processing of mineral building materials.

Many documents are developed in cooperation with the corresponding ISO Technical Committees.

Considerable proportion of the deliverables are harmonized standards that give presumption of conformity to the safety requirements of the Machinery Directive and mainly because of this status, they are widely used by the industry, market surveillance or conformity assessments bodies.
