ATEX Legislation

ATEX is a European Directive concerned with equipment and protective systems intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres.  It has been in force since 1st July 2003, and applies to the whole of the EU and EEA and all new installations must conform to this regulation.  Also, all existing installations have to be analysed and risk assessed using the new code by the end of June 2006.

All equipment that Filtrex supplies complies with ATEX regulations and we have the experience and knowledge to advise our customers to ensure they are compliant.

Manufactuers must identify machinery conforming to ATEX regulation by attaching a plate displaying the manufacturer’s details, ATEX classification and European Commission mark for Ex products.
