With the introduction of the ATEX Directives, the European Union has raised the quality and safety standards for equipment installed in hazardous environments.
Safety in potentially explosive workplaces is governed at European level by two directives: ATEX 2014/34/EU (product directive) and ATEX 99/92/EC (social directive).
The first directive sets out the requirements and procedures for conformity assessment of ATEX equipment and identifies the obligations and responsibilities of economic operators (manufacturers, authorised representatives, importers and distributors) who place it on the European market.
The second directive identifies the employer's obligations and indicates the requirements for the protection of the safety and health of workers who may be exposed to the risk of explosive atmospheres at the place where the equipment is installed.
