That's why we offer comprehensive services to meet your needs, from risk assessments to certifications.
ATEX AND DSEAR Compliance
What are atex and dsear?
ATEX is the name commonly given to the two European Directives for controlling explosive atmospheres: Directive 99/92/EC (also known as ‘ATEX 137’ or the ‘ATEX Workplace Directive’) and Directive 94/9/ EC (also known as ‘ATEX 95’ or ‘the ATEX Equipment Directive’). They are concerned with the minimum requirements for improving the health and safety protection of workers potentially at risk from explosive atmospheres and were previously implemented in the UK through the Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmosphere Regulations (DSEAR).
With the withdrawal of the UK from the EU, the DSEAR regulations will still apply and current requirements remain in place. The UK Government has introduced the UKCA Ex (UK ATEX) for Ex products placed on the market with a transitional period until 31 December 2024.
