The Technical Department offers guidance and consulting on interpretation and adaptation to EU and non-EU laws, directives and legislation.
Thanks to daily contact with national and international certification and standardisation bodies and sector companies, the department is able to keep constantly up to date with the latest developments in the national and international regulatory framework, which it passes on immediately to member companies.
The main areas of activity are:
- Safety of machinery and of industrial production processes
- Occupational health and safety
- Care for the environment
- Company management systems
- Energy and energy saving
The Technical Department is strongly involved in supporting company Research & Development and innovation activities, for which purpose it organises seminars and training on specific new themes.
UCIMA also holds the Presidency and Secretariat of the "CEN TC 146" working group, which is responsible at a European level for defining and harmonising safety standards for packaging machinery.
At a national level it also coordinates the UNI working group on packaging machinery safety.
These activities enable UCIMA to present the requests and problems of its member companies at institutional committees, helping them to adapt rapidly to the new standards.
