TÜV SÜD can assist manufacturers to meet the requirements of the ATEX Directive for equipment, safety / control and regulation devices, components, and protective systems.
TÜV SÜD experts can also support manufacturers in the process of classifying their products to equipment type, equipment category and other classification requirements found within the directive 2014/34/EU, and the requirements coming from customers of manufacturers (e.g. zones) related to the Directive 1999/92/EC.
As an EU Competent Body, TÜV SÜD and its partners are able to validate the products' design and issue the required type approval to annex III or a certificate according to to annex IX of the directive 2014/34/EU.
