ATEX Certifications (ExNB) - Get help with the type examination

An ATEX certification is a type examination of a machine or piece of equipment that has ATEX safety requirements - the type examination takes place in accordance with the ATEX directive 2014/34/EU, which in Denmark is called the interior design directive.

The certification means that a third party – a notified body – has assessed whether the machine or equipment meets the regulatory requirements of Directive 2014/34/EU - so safety is not left solely to the manufacturer. If you as a company fail to get a certification when required, you will be responsible in the event of accidents.

The following certificates must be issued by a notified body:

  • EU Type Examination Certificate - Annex III
  • EU Unit Verification / Certificate of conformity for the unit - Annex IX
  • EU Component Certificate (U) (requires re-certification before installation)
  • Productions Quality Assurance Notification - PQAN - Annex IV or VII.

How can the Danish Technological Institute help?

Certification & Inspection at Danish Technological Institute is an impartial and independent entity designated as Notified Body in Denmark for electrical and non-electrical equipment (Notified Body No. 396 and No. 1073 - ExNB). This means that we can issue ATEX certificates for material and equipment used in areas with a potentially explosive atmosphere (Ex-areas).

Our accreditation from DANAK ensures that only people who have deep insight about the ATEX requirements perform the certification.

This is required for the certification

The type examination / certification is carried out in accordance with the requirements of Annex III of the Directive 2014/34/EU. Documentation that enables assessment in accordance with the requirements must be submitted, i.e.:

  • The manufacturer's name and address as well as information about production sites
  • A description of the type and possibly model key
  • ATEX marking
  • Construction and manufacturing drawings as well as sketches of components, partial assemblies, circuits, etc. and possibly descriptions and explanations necessary for understanding said drawings and sketches
  • List of standards that have been applied in whole or in part
  • Risk assessment with description of selected solutions with regard to meeting requirements as well as results of construction calculations and investigations, etc.
  • Possible test reports
  • Instructions for use
  • Declaration of conformity (presentation)

Productions Quality Assurance Notification - PQAN - Annex IV or VII, is issued in collaboration with Dancert (Notified Body no. 1073).
