Policies & Issues: Internal Market - Product Safety Legislation

Article 6(2) of the revised ATEX Directive 2014/34/EU requires components satisfying the definition in Article 2(3) of the directive ("any item essential to the safe functioning of equipment and protective systems but with no autonomous function") to be accompanied by an attestation of conformity in accordance with Article 13(3). Article 6(8) of the new directive further contains the requirement for instructions and safety information to be supplied with the products. This would include components. However, Annex II, Paragraph 1.0.6, requires instructions to be supplied only with the equipment and protective systems
