This European directive (2014/68/EU) authorises placing devices satisfying the safety requirements on the market. Certain products are self-certified by the manufacturer (cat.I), others are tested by an independent certification company (cat. II and III), lastly some don’t come under these two categories and go into paragraph §4.3.
The Certificate of Sanitary Conformity (ACS) is an official authorisation delivered by the Directorate General for Health, which has been compulsory in France since 24th December 2006. It applies equally to the material of the equipment in contact with water destined for human consumption and to the equipment itself.
The regulation described as ATEX requires all heads of workplaces to control the risks relating to an explosion in the atmosphere in the same regard as all other professional risks.
For this, an explosion risk assessment in the company is therefore required in order to identify all the places where explosive atmospheres can form.
