ATEX certification or approval refers to a process undertaken by either Eurofins E&E CML Limited (Eurofins CML UK) or its subsidiary CML B.V. Eurofins CML UK is a UK-based, UKAS accredited, EU Notified Body. CML B.V. is a Dutch, RvA accredited, EU Notified Body. The certification process is undertaken to verify product construction and manufacturing compliance with the relevant standards in accordance with the requirements of the ATEX Directive 2014/34/EU. EU Type examination certificates are issued for design approval and quality assurance notifications (QAN) are issued for manufacturing compliance. Compliance with the ATEX Directive allows manufacturers to place products for use in potentially explosive atmospheres onto the European market by declaring compliance with the single harmonised procedure that is accepted across the EU.
