UWED Inspections for E-Commerce & Logistics

Ensure that your warehouse automation system equipment is fit and safe for use with UWED inspections from SGS.

State-of-the-art warehouses are increasingly deploying warehouse automation systems to boost productivity, efficiency and safety. In the EU, the safety of these systems is regulated by the Use of Work Equipment Directive 2009/104/EC (UWED), which is transposed into local laws by each member state. The directive emphasizes safe machine integration into the work environment. It states that employers must ensure equipment is fit and safe for use before making it available. Periodic tests, inspections, maintenance and repairs to maintain its safe operation are also required.*

*Please note that certain high risk equipment may be subject to local law and can only be inspected by authorized bodies. Our ability to offer support will need to be checked on a case by case basis.
