AtexdsearOne of our most common areas of activity is helping our clients comply with the ATEX Equipment Directive for CE marking and UKCA marking of products and the ATEX Worker Directive for workplaces (known in the UK as the Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations, DSEAR). We have extensive expertise and experience with most types of equipment for explosive atmospheres, from small-scale electrical apparatus such as instruments and motors through machinery for petroleum, solvent coating, pumping and powder handling, to large integrated process plant for steel, chemical, pharmaceutical and food production. Conformance has been established for over 20 years and has extensive expertise in Explosive Risk assessments.

Our safety consultants have a huge wealth of knowledge and experience of the industry stretching back over 20 years and constantly keep themselves updated on developing technologies, assessment and protection methods and changes to the directives, regulations and standards.

We have all the expertise and experience necessary to assist with all aspects of explosion risk assessments required by the directives, including hazardous substance assessment, hazardous area classification and ignition hazard assessment.

We are happy to give you advice on any aspect of the ATEX Directive compliance and will discuss your requirements with you to provide a tailored response. If required, we can assess your equipment against current requirements and provide you with a comprehensive report identifying any possible areas of concern, recommendations for improvements and guidance to help you comply. Alternatively, if you prefer we can provide you with support and documentation to complete the assessment yourselves.

Below are a number of recent case studies that demonstrate how Conformance has met our customers' needs for ATEX compliance...
