The attention paid by SMI to safety is evidenced by the fact that it has recently obtained the certificate of compliance with directive 2014/68/EU applied to the ECOBLOC® ERGON 4-14-4 HC EV model, PC18080IF2080, commonly known as PED, by TÜV InterCert, one of the most prestigious certification, inspection and testing bodies.
This recognition certifies the full compliance of the pressure equipment with the essential safety and health protection requirements.

In addition to safety, a key role is played by sustainable development and environmental protection, in which the SMI Group's companies are particularly active, through different actions, like the replacement of plastic components of the machines with steel parts deriving from waste material, renewal of the company car fleet with new electric vehicles generating low CO₂ emissions, the regular measurement of greenhouse gases emitted and interventions for reducing its carbon footprint (for instance the use of eco-friendly materials and the development of new products with low consumption), according to the guidelines stated in ISO 14064-1.
