A reference for all those interested in Atex and UK hazardous area (Hazloc) requirements and equipment. Starting with basic principles the intention is to clarify a lot of misunderstanding about Hazardous areas and equipment including what happens now we have left the EU and what will happen in 2021 after the transition period.
Formerly www.atex.info, a private site for training purposes, www.hazardex.com is now public and currently being rewritten and updated to include Brexit information and the new new UKCA Hazardous area Certification for the UK.
It is an ongoing project and does not currently deal with cover Group I Mining equipment or details of the design requirements of apparatus for a Type Certificate application, perhaps that will follow. Currently some of the information may be a little scarce but it is continuously being added to.
Please Note: This site is not affiliated to the IML Group, Hazardex magazine or conference.
Topics covered include:
Should you require advice or assistance with equipment assessment & compliance, system solution design or creating intrinsic safety Descriptive System Documents please contact as we offer a number of services.
Feedback and comments are welcome particularly if there is something you believe to be unclear or in error.
