Nuova direttiva ATEX 2014/34/EU – cosa cambia rispetto alla 94/9/CE?
Primo articolo qui
The ATEX Directive 94/9/EC is one of a number of CE Marking Directives that are getting a make-over to bring them into line with EU Decision No. 768/2008/EU, in accordance with the New Legislative Framework (NLF) that was introduced in 2008. Subsequently, a new recast, Equipment for Explosive Atmospheres (ATEX) Directive 2014/34/EU came into force on the 18th April 2014, however, the current directive (94/9/EC) will not be repealed until 20th April 2016 and until this 2016 date, manufacturers can continue to place products on the market that comply with the current Directive.
The new Directive appears quite different to the Directive it will replace, and the pdf version is 65% larger, but other than rewording, reformatting, reordering and clarifications, the actual changes and the impact on manufacturers is relatively slight. Changing to the new Directive should not be too difficult for manufacturers and furthermore EC-type-examination certificates which have been issued under the current ATEX Directive (94/9/EC) will be valid under the new Directive (2014/34/EU).
Please note: EC-type-examination certificates are NOT the same as EU Declarations of Conformity which, if issued under the ATEX Directive, will cease to be valid when the current ATEX Directive (94/9/EC) is repealed on 20th April 2016.
