ATEX Directive (2014/34/EU)
Pre-Compliance Review Services
Let North American Enterprises help you determine the best approach for obtaining approvals. Once this is determined, we can review your product against the appropriate standards and provide you with specific guidance on the changes that would need to be made before the product could be Certified.
EU-Type Test Approvals
At North American Enterprises, we work directly with the ATEX Notified Body and they will accept the evaluation and testing that we conduct.
We are also able to conduct most (if not all) of the required testing at our facilities. For unique tests that our outside our scope, we are able to seamlessly coordinate these tests with laboratories in our network here in the United States in the United Kingdom.
With our working arrangements with these test labs, you will not need to wait in a queue. Your project will be put in their schedule immediately.
Quality System Assessment
As an additional requirement, the ATEX Directive requires a Quality Audit for ATEX EU-Type Test Certified products. This is audit is similar to an ISO9001 audit. However, it contains some ATEX specific requirements (outlined in EN80079-34).
Most agencies need to bring auditors from overseas to conduct these audit. However, with North American Enterprises, there is no need to fly someone over from Europe. This can be done by our staff here in the United States.
