Framework for the Production of Instruction Leaflets

Feb 26, 2014

It is recognised that more information on the safe use of rented equipment should be provided to users and in accordance with the requirements of Directive EC 2006/42/EC (Machinery Directive) and Directive 2009/104/EC (Use of Work Equipment).

It has long been a practice in some countries to provide such information and the ERA has a desire to encourage established rental companies both in mature and emerging markets to do so.

In order to support rental companies and national rental associations when creating instruction leaflets to be distributed to customers in one or the other countries, the ERA drafted a first version of this framework in 2011, updated in February 2014. Leaflets produced according to the framework will be entitled to add ‘produced in accordance with ERA Framework’ as a form of accreditation if so desired.
