ATEX certification is based on ATEX Directive 2014/34/EU and is related to the equipment used in potentially explosive atmosphere. Explosive atmosphere means a mixture with air, under atmospheric conditions, of flammable substances in the form of gases, vapours, mists or dusts in which, after ignition has occurred, combustion spreads to the entire unburned mixture. If, due to local and operational conditions an atmosphere could become explosive, it calls potentially explosive atmosphere.
Products that fall under the scope of ATEX Directive can be both the equipment and protective systems intended for use in potentially explosive atmosphere, as well as the components intended to be incorporated into that equipment and protective systems. The ATEX Directive 2014/35/EU does not apply to the following product categories:
For products falling under the scope of ATEX Directive there are different conformity assessment procedures required. For several conformity assessments the presence of Notified Body is required. Where compliance of a product with the applicable requirements has been demonstrated by the assessment procedure, manufacturer shall draw up an EU Declaration of Conformity and affix the CE marking.
