EN 60204 Installation test

What is an EN 60204 installation test? When it is required and who can perform and certify this test? Are there any similar tests that might be needed during scenarios where this particular test is needed? In other words, basically will there be many cases where I’d need to have a variety of different tests performed at the same time as having an EN 60204 test undertaken?

"All electrical installations must be tested to BS7671 up to the point where the machinery is connected. The machinery itself only falls under EN60204 and need to be tested by someone competent having a qualification for testing to EN60204. Unfortunately, I can't recommend anyone as I am an electrician and I can't test to EN 60204. For this type of test your best bet will be to find an electrician working on industrial maintenance, they are the most likely to have the training to EN60204."

EN60204 relates to machines. The way they are designed and constructed. It is a heavy document and to answer your question would need a lot more info than what you have provided.

"En 60204 test is the test of machinery. Should be done by a certified and registered electrician. Hoping this is the test you need not a EICR Electrical Installation Certification Report?"

"I understand that the electrical equipment of machinery (EN 60204-1) is excluded from the scope of BS7671.

Which are the main mandatory duties for an employer in case of a new installation of a machinery in the work premises?

Wiring regulation wise should the employer stop his verification at the point of the installation of the machine (i.e. main disconnecting device of the machine) and ensure that the machine is in compliance with EN 60204-1 or he should assess the whole installation and carry out verification and testing till the branch circuits of the machine as well?"
