All this has been possible thanks to the initiative of the company founder, Rita Pera, who understood well in advance, what the European Directives of the new approach would have represented for the technical documentation sector.

Being member as far back as 1989 in the working group coordinated by UCIMU (Union of Italian Machine Tool Manufacturers), to implement the obligations imposed to the Manufacturers by the first machinery directive and culminated with the presentation to over 500 manufacturing companies of the “Guidelines for the drawing up of technical documentation and instruction manual for machinery“, in the conference room of the old Milan fair, Micro Style focused all its efforts on “techniques” and “working methods” aimed at producing documentation: streamlined, efficient, complete and compliant with the safety requirements of the Directives.

Micro Style does not deal with the design, construction or technical service of machines or plants, but can support machinery manufacturers in the design, manufacturing and technical assistance of safe machines through a correct choice, interpretation and application of European Directives (mandatory statutory provisions) and harmonized standards (technical supports for the correct implementation of the Directives). The directives applicable to machinery vary from a minimum of 2 to a maximum of 4 and, being a “provision of law”, they must be applied “word by word”, without exceptions or exclusions.

The harmonized standards related to the Directives are more than 2000 for a total of over 100,000 pages. The choice of the “appropriate“ standards and their correct application is not always simple task and it is for small and/or medium-sized companies. The Micro Style support can be the right “key“ to make the correct choice, put it into practice quickly and therefore obtain the “presumption of conformity“ with the requirements of the Directives.
