Organisations in the EU must follow Directives to protect employees from explosion risk in areas with an explosive atmosphere.
There are two ATEX Directives (one for the manufacturer and one for the user of the equipment):
Note: The ATEX 95 “equipment” Directive 94/9/EC, was withdrawn on 20 April 2016 when it was replaced by ATEX 214 Directive 2014/34/EU. ATEX Directive 2014/34/EU is mandatory for manufacturers as of 20 April 2016 as stated in article 44 of the Directive.
ATEX Directive 2014/34/EU was published on 29 March 2014, by the European Parliament. It refers to the harmonisation of the laws of the Member States relating to equipment and protective systems intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres.
The ATEX Directive covers explosions from flammable gas/vapours and combustible dust/fibres (which, contrary to common perception, can lead to hazardous explosions)
Hazard – Gas/vapour/mist
Hazard – dust/fibres
