UKCA ATEX & Hazardous Area Equipment Certification

Published 11 Feb 2021




UCKA Certification To Replace ATEX

The UKCA (UK Conformity Assessed) marking is a new UK product marking that is used for goods being placed on the market in Great Britain (England, Wales and Scotland). The UKCA Certification covers most goods and electrical equipment which previously required the CE marking including Thorne & Derrick International’s range of hazardous area equipment.

Products that previously required ATEX Notified Body Certification will now be required to issue UKCA only ‘Ex’ certificates from the 1st January 2022.

Thorne & Derrick International have complied a range of articles from Notified Bodies and authoritative sources in order to inform and update the industry.
