Explosive atmospheres create unique challenges

Electrical and/or mechanical equipment, components and protective systems for use in potentially explosive atmospheres must comply to relevant standards and/or directives, and must meet certification requirements.
The use of different certification schemes worldwide means that there is much to learn; ATEX in the European Union (EU), KC mark for Korea, HazLoc for the US, and so on. Requirements for the specific certification scheme may vary depending on the product scope, classification of application areas and operational requirements.

This annual workshop explores key differences, and key similarities, between systems for accessing the US and the European Union with your products, and encourages discussion and engagement on key topics.
