CE Marking and the ATEX Directive
Certified Explosion protected products and equipment intended for use in Hazardous Areas within the EC, and which must carry the CE Mark, can only show this mark if they comply strictly with the ATEX 95 directive, and this means that the latest technical knowledge as contained in the applicable European Standards has been taken into account. When product or equipment is certified in accordance with the ATEX directive, the product marking and documentation related to this would in addition bear the Ex symbol signifying that it has been tested against applicable European Standards and that it meets the Essential Health & Safety Requirements of the Directive.
CE = CENELEC COMPLIANCE
Indicates compliance with all relevant European Standards and Directives
