Explosion prevention under the Machinery Directive
For any machine with an internal flammable atmosphere by design, EN 1127- ‘Explosive atmospheres – Explosion prevention and protection’ is normally applied and listed on the D of C.
EN 1127-1:2007 should NOT be used or referenced on products placed on the market after 31.7.2014
This Standard has been significantly updated and will replace the old Standard completely in 2014, this will require a re-evaluation of the products against the new Standard and the D of C (and Technical File) to be updated.
