Validity of EU Type-Examination Certificates and EU Declarations of Conformity under the ATEX Directive (currently: 94/9/EC)

Published: 10 February 2013

Policies & Issues: Internal Market - Product Safety Legislation

The alignment of the Directive on equipment and protective systems for potentially explosive atmosphere (ATEX 94/9/EC) with the New Legislative Framework (Regulation 765/2008) calls for the update of guidelines on the measures manufacturers should take in case a new edition of a harmonised standard relevant to their products is published. These are not legally binding guidelines, but intend to facilitate the adaptation of manufacturers to the principles of the New Legislative Framework.
