Electrical and non-electrical equipment designated for use in workplaces which are potentially at risk for explosive atmospheres must ensure a level of safety appropriate to the area of installation. All EU countries require CE and ATEX markings on products used in explosive atmospheres. The use of harmonized EN standards gives the manufacturer the “presumption of conformity” to the “Essential Health and Safety Requirements (EHSRs)” and a basis on which to issue a declaration of conformity (DoC) for the ATEX Directive.
MET offers testing, certification and product inspection services under the ATEX Directive as well as the IECEx Certified Equipment Scheme. We provide expert assessment of the compliance of your products to help you ensure their suitability and explosion protection according to the requirements needed for obtaining the Distinctive Community Mark (Ex in hexagon), CE Mark, and approval for other international markets.
Eurofins | MET Labs is one of very few Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratories (NRTLs) that can provide seamless testing, certification and product inspection services under the ATEX Directive for products intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres.
