It is intended for companies of all sizes to enable them to implement the necessary and sufficient means for AM operators to work safely.


The proposed standard provides a guide for risk assessment and implementation of prevention and protection measures relating to additive manufacturing with metallic feedstocks (e.g. powders, wires,…). The risks covered by proposed standard concern the entire process value chain, from the reception of the raw material to the output of the parts for delivery. The management of waste and discharges is also taken into account.

Please find here the NWIP note and the draft standard. Members of the standardisation committee "additive manufacturing" can express their opinion regarding this proposal until 14/01/2019.
