In the European marketplace, Ex equipment (HazLoc) is required to comply with the ATEX Directive but may also need to comply with other applicable EU Directives, such as the EMC Directive, Radio Equipment Directive (RED), Pressure Equipment Directive (PED), and others, depending on the product application.

Products complying with the Essential Health and Safety Requirements (EHSR) of the ATEX Directive are marked with the “Ex” mark.

What standards does Ex equipment need to comply with in Europe?

Products required to comply with the ATEX Directive are evaluated to the EN 60079 series of standards, which have been adopted from the IEC 60079 series of standards, and/or other harmonized standards published in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJ).

The ATEX Certification Program consists of 3 key elements, all issued by an accredited Notified Body (NB):

UNIT VERIFICATION PROGRAM

For Ex equipment produced in limited/small quantities, the Unit Verification program offers a better option than certification. The two programs are very similar, with the main difference being that for Unit Verification, the labels are applied to the product by the Notified Body representative and therefore, QAN audit is not required.
