The safety case defines the principles and design features, compliance with which provides the necessary security, and the need for risk assessment after overhauled machines and (or) equipment whose value must not be higher then permissible. The safety case is the same as the technical file in accordance with Directive 2006/42/EC "On machinery" (see Annex VII).
