Automated Access Control Systems and the Law

The Supply of Machinery (Safety) Regulations 2008, states that it is a required that an end user of all industrial sliding gates and automated entry systems must create a fully documented maintenance programme in accordance with manufacturer recommendations.

The European Community Commission stipulates that all automatic closing systems, including gates and doors are governed by Machine Directives 1 and should comply with the CE, EN12453 standard (and CE, EN12445 – testing and measurement) to determine the safety parameters for the automatic closing system and indicate how dangerous situations can be avoided or reduced, by:

  • Respecting the safety measurements
  • Stating the minimum protection level and force limitation of the device
  • Detection of people and the use of safety detection devices
  • Resistance to breakage and failure
  • Documentation must be available for inspection and contain the following:
    Operating instructions for the safe use of the system
    Normal maintenance provisions
    Declaration of approval
    The maintenance agreement
