This standard specifies safety and hygiene requirements for the design and manufacture of intermediate provers with moving pocket carriers as described in Clause 3 used in the food industry, pastry-making, bakeries, etc. for giving a resting time to dough between dividing and moulding processes. This European Standard specifies all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to the installation, adjustment, operation, cleaning, maintenance, dismantling, disabling and scrapping of intermediate provers with moving pocket carriers when they are used as intended and under conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer (see Clause 4).The significant hazards covered by the standard are mechanical (shearing, trapping, cutting, loss of stability), electrical, ergonomic and also those resulting from inhalation of flour dust and lack of hygiene. Noise is not considered to be a significant hazard from intermediate provers. This does not mean that the manufacturer of the machine is absolved from reducing noise and making a noise declaration. Therefore a noise test code is proposed in Annex B. The following machines are excluded: - rack provers; - experimental and testing machines under development by the manufacturer. This standard is not applicable to intermediate provers with moving pocket carriers which are manufactured before the date of its publication as EN.
