Technical Recommendation

Technical Recommendation

Technical Recommendations from EUnited Cleaning are semi-standards for issues that are not adequately covered by European or international standards. They have been prepared by the Technical Committee of EUnited Cleaning, which represents the leading European manufacturers of commercial cleaning machines.

I.e., for a Technical Recommendation the European cleaning machine industry defines requirements and recommends measures in addition to the existing European and international standards.

The documents apply to cleaning machines within the scope of international standards as stipulated by IEC SC 61J ‘Electrical motor-operated cleaning appliances for commercial use’ and by CEN TC 197/SC 1/WG 1 ‘High-pressure cleaners’, for use in residential, commercial, light industrial and industrial environments within the single European market.

During the preparation of documents, all interested parties are invited to comment the proposals published and to participate in the discussion.

  TR 34001 Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC)
    TR 34001 Ed. 2 March 2010
  This document recommends those European standards for electromagnetic compatibility that must be taken into consideration to fulfil the essential requirements of European Directive 2004/108/EC on the electromagnetic compatibility of cleaning machines.
TR 34002 Machinery Directive Guideline
    TR 34002 Ed. 1 March 2010
    With the new Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC which entered into effect on 29th June 2006 and is applicable from 29th of December 2009 it became necessary to revise all safety standards for cleaning machines with respect to the Essential health and safety requirements of the Machinery Directive (ESHR of the MD).
At the end of or even after this revision process it became obvious that there is an additional need for a guideline as interpretation support for manufacturers applying the MD, besides the specification of requirements within relevant safety standards. Due to that, the Technical Committee of EUnited Cleaning decided to collect technical recommendations on all open issues which need to be specified or at least explained. The present document gives therefore these recommendations and might be amended in future where necessary.
TR 34003 Wheel pressure in floor cleaning machines
    TR 34003 Ed. 1 November 2010
    For the professional application of floor-cleaning machines in public and commercial buildings (e.g. hospitals, railway stations, airports, sports facilities and supermarkets), the input from manufacturers of machines shall be considered regarding the nature of floors and the stress involved. Building operators and engineers shall consider the main effects mentioned within the TR as well as the application instructions from the manufacturers relating to the machinery in question.
