Selling motor-driven doors on the Swedish market

Are you a manufacturer of motor-driven doors? Do you want to sell the doors on the Swedish market? Then this information may be of interest to you.

Sweden requires that some motor-driven doors must be inspected by one of our national inspection bodies. This inspection in many cases also shall be done for new motor-driven doors. You do not have to pass this inspection on new motor-driven doors if the declaration of conformity (against the Machinery Directive, 2006/42/EC) also covers the installation of the door. So this option is often used in Sweden and also used by sellers as an argument as to why the customer should buy a door from them.

The motor-driven doors that must be inspected are, for example, garage doors, industrial doors, rollers, and gates. Doors which are excluded from this inspection requirement are, for example, small motor-driven pedestrian doors.

Our regulation (BFS 2011:12) in this field is written only in Swedish.
