What you need for ATEX and UKCA Explosive Atmosphere Certification for the UK and EU Markets?

Feb 2, 2022 | ExVeritas News

Selling products for use in potentially explosive atmospheres in both the UK and EU will now require 2 marks, not just the ‘ATEX’ and ‘CE’ mark that was accepted when the UK was part of the EU.

If your product previously required, an ‘ATEX Notified Body’ you will need to now use a UK Government UKCA Appointed Body that has explosive atmosphere certification (‘Ex’) on its scope which ExVeritas has.
