ATEX and UKCA Non-Electrical Certification
ExVeritas are specialists in EX Non-Electrical Certification, we have significant experience with all types of machinery and we can also issue reports to the Machinery Directive and SIL/Functional Safety.
We are UKAS and DANAK Accredited for all types of ATEX and UKCA Non-Electrical Certification and can issue Notified Body Certificates for all Categories (Unit Verification) or for Category 1 Type Approval. The various certification routes/options are shown below:
ATEX/UKCA Category 1 non-electrical – ATEX /UKCA Notified Body Certificate
ATEX/UKCA Category 2 non-electrical – Notified Body/UKCA File Lodge (Optional Certificate)
ATEX/UKCA Category 3 non-electrical – Optional Certificate
ExVeritas has also developed a suite of free software for our customers to assist with ATEX or IECEx non-electrical ignition analysis to the new ISO80079-36/37 Standards (these new non-electrical standards will be used for both ATEX and IECEx non-electrical certification). The software is available by simply logging in (there is nothing to install) and will be made available on request to any customer attending our non-electrical training courses or certifying ATEX/IECEx non-electrical projects with us.
ATEX and UKCA Technical File Lodge
Certain types of UKCA and ATEX Equipment requires that a Technical File be lodged with an ATEX Notified Body before CE Marking can be legally applied and a UKCA Appointed Body before a UKCA Declaration and Mark can be applied. Typically this will be Zone 1 non-electrical equipment where the file can be lodged without further Notified/Appointed Body involvement. If you want us to review your file to make sure you have covered the requirements of the appropriate Legislation, this is available as an option.
ExVeritas are able to offer significant cost saving s when lodging for both UKCA and ATEX and for multiple File Lodges
The Technical File must be held by the Notified Body for 10 years after the last unit is placed on the market, so if you only have the file held by a Notified Body for 10 years total, you can not sell the equipment after the first year, to be able to sell the equipment for five years, you would need the file to be held for 15 years. Our current file holding costs are shown in the application form, to request a lodge please use the CMS and select File Lodge. All files lodged with ExVeritas receive an official signed Notified Body/Appointed Body Lodge Letter with unique reference number which can be checked on line.
IECEx ‘Ex h’ non-electrical certication.
IECEx Certification requires a full test and assessment program by ExVeritas as an IECEx TL and CB (no self certication is accepted). For production a QAR may also need to be issued (or 100% unit verification will be required). Full detail can be found here
