The CE marking is mandatory for equipment and protective systems that fall under the scope of the ATEX Directive 114 (2014/34/EU). To affix the CE marking on ATEX equipment the conformity with EMC Directive and/or Pressure Equipment Directive can also be required.
The CE marking shall be followed by the specific marking of explosion protection (Ex), and may be followed by any other mark indicating a special risk or use, as it mentioned in ATEX 114 Directive. By affixing the CE marking on ATEX the manufacturer or importer confirms that the equipment meets essential health and safety requirements of ATEX Directive 2014/34/EU (previously: ATEX Directive 94/9/EC). The equipment bearing the CE marking can be traded freely within European Economic Area (EEA).

This Directive is not needed for CE marking ATEX, but is needed for worker protection and obligate employer to issue explosion protection documents.
