Areas classified into zones must be protected from sources of ignition. Further information and guidance on the classification and zoning of areas where potentially explosive atmospheres may occur and the selection of equipment for use in those areas:.
Using the correct equipment can help greatly in this. Equipment in use before July is allowed to be used indefinitely provided a risk assessment shows it is safe to do so. Some industry sectors and work activities are exempted because there is other legislation that fulfils the requirements.

ATEX is the name commonly given to the two European Directives for controlling explosive atmospheres: In DSEAR, an explosive atmosphere is defined as a mixture of dangerous substances with air, under atmospheric conditions, in the form of gases, vapours, mist or dust in which, after ignition has occurred, combustion spreads to the entire unburned mixture.
The technical dossier must be kept for a period of 10 years. There are four ATEX classification to ensure that a specific piece of equipment or protective system is appropriate and can be safely used in a particular application: This standard given by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration defines and classifies hazardous locations such as explosive atmospheres.

Confirming verifying overall explosion safety Before a workplace containing zoned areas comes into operation for the first time, the employer must ensure that the overall explosion safety measures are confirmed verified as being safe.
ATEX is the name commonly given to the two European Directives for controlling explosive atmospheres:. Explosive atmospheres can be caused by flammable gases, mists or vapours or by combustible dusts. Classification of areas where explosive atmospheres may occur Employers must classify areas where hazardous explosive atmospheres may occur into zones.
Electrical engineering European Union directives Explosion protection Electrical safety Certification marks Natural gas safety Standards.
Zone 22 — A place in which an explosive atmosphere in the form of a cloud of combustible dust in air is not likely to occur in normal operation but, if it does occur, will persist for a short period only. The Regulations apply to all equipment intended for use in explosive atmospheres, whether electrical or mechanical, and also to protective systems.
Equipment already in use before July can continue to be used indefinitely provided a risk assessment shows it is safe to do so. For more information on how the requirements of the Directive have been put into effect in Great Britain see the information in the section Explosive atmospheres in the workplace below.
Once certified, the equipment is marked by the ‘EX’ symbol to identify it as such.
