1.2 This European Standard deals with the significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to machines for the break-out of flat glass when they are used as intended and under the conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer (see Clause 4). Those hazards which are dealt with in EN 619 for conveyors are excepted. This European Standard specifies the appropriate techni-cal measures to eliminate or reduce risks arising from the significant hazards during commissioning, operation and maintenance. Hazards from noise are not considered to be significant.
1.3 This European Standard is not applicable to the break-out operation (opening the cut) of cutting ma-chines for laminated glass (see EN 13035-7).
1.4 This European Standard is not applicable to the treatment of waste flat glass such as crushing and/or charging of waste flat glass into bins, containers.
1.5 This European Standard does not apply to the significant hazards of conveyors. If there are specific hazards which arise by the co-operation of conveyors with machines for break-out of flat glass, appropriate measures are specified.
1.6 This European Standard is not applicable to machines for break-out of flat glass which are manufac-tured before the date of publication of this European Standard by CEN.
