What is ATEX certification

ATEX is the European certification given to equipment tested and approved to be intrinsically-safe.

There are two European Directives in place for the control of explosive atmospheres:
ATEX stands for atmosphères explosibles. It’s a European Union directive from the European Committee for Standardization that covers “equipment and protective systems intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres.” An atmosphere can be explosive for several reasons, including flammable gases, mists or vapors, or combustible dust.

All equipment and protective systems intended for this type of use in the EU must meet ATEX health and safety requirements.
Directive 1999/92/EC (also known as 'ATEX 153' or the 'ATEX Workplace Directive')
Directive 2014/34/EU (also known as 'ATEX 114' or 'the ATEX Equipment Directive')
