If a company's activity is connected with potentially explosive equipment or works in potentially explosive atmospheres, it needs an explosion protection certificate. All explosion-proof equipment and systems fall under the ATEX Directive (the EU Directive setting out the requirements for potentially explosive equipment and atmospheres). The explosion protection certification as per the ATEX Directive covers anything used within, or in conjunction with potentially explosive atmospheres, such as safety, control and regulation devices and protective components, equipment and systems. The explosion protection certification is not an easy one and requires thorough compliance with the smallest details of occupational health and safety rules.
