Project Duration:

1 month


World-wide, market-leading manufacturer of gear pumps.

Project Summary:

The client asked us to produce their technical file within a time constraint. They had been attempting to complete this file for 9 years. They did not have any record of compliance with the ATEX directive and standards

Applicable Directives:

ATEX Directive, Machinery Directive, Electro Magnetic Compatibility (EMC) Directive, Restriction of Hazordous Substances (RoHS) Directive

What we did:

  • Assessed their entire product range to the ATEX standards for non-electrical equipment using checklists.
  • Produced an action plan for correcting some non-compliances. 
  • Identified which of their engineering documents were needed to complete their Technical File.
  • Highlighted which essential documents were missing.
  • We turned this into a detailed action plan with individual responsibilities and completion dates.  
  • We managed this production, with regular reviews. 
  • Arranged the documents on their file server into a technical file.
  • Supplied written instructions on how to deliver the technical file for any pump to the authorities on request.
  • We compiled a simplified technical file to lodge with an ATEX notified body; this file was detailed enough to comply with the directive, but simple enough to easily maintain. 

What the customer did:

  • Followed our detailed action plan
  • Produced the missing documents identified by us
  • Assisted with arranging the documents

Final Outcome:

The client was able to produce a completed technical file, on time, for their international director. The lack of a technical file had been a long standing problem for the client and they were extremely relieved to have it finally completed.
