ExVeritas have been informed officially by the UK Government that we will automatically become a UK approved body from 1st January 2021, and we will keep our 4-digit identification number (2585).
There will also be a new UK database which will replace the EU’s New Approach Notified and Designated Organisations (NANDO) database.
For ‘Ex’ products (formerly ATEX) only ‘UKCA Bodies’ (the UK equivalent of an ATEX Notified body) such as ExVeritas will be able to issue the appropriate certificates needed for entry to the UK market and the Standards used will be determined by the UK List of approved Standard (BS).
Only UKCA Issued EX Certificates will not be accepted from the 1st January 2022 in the UK for products that previously required ATEX Notified Body Certification.
ExVeritas become one of only a handful of companies in the world that can issue UKCA Ex Certification and ATEX Certication in parallel in one project.
