Latest ATEX QAN Certification Acheived

Mar 10 2012

Honeywell (UK) announces that Honeywell Analytics EMEAI, a manufacturer of fixed gas detections solutions, is the first in the World to be certified to the updated ATmosphères EXplosives (ATEX) Quality Assurance Notification (QAN) license.

ATEX - a European Union (EU) legislation, which has been in effect since 2003 - governs the manufacture and subsequent use of safety products located in EU Member State hazardous locations.

ATEX is an active directive under regular review by the Notified Body Group (ExNB) in the drive to constantly increase safety, performance and reliability of equipment for use in hazardous areas. An important step was the release in 2011 of a new standard EN 80079-34 revising the quality system and ATEX QAN module requirements for manufacturers of hazardous area equipment, which will help to raise the standard of device performance.

The certification was issued by CSA-Sira, who are one of the few Certifying Bodies to offer ATEX/IECEx product certification, North American CSA certification, gas detector performance testing and functional safety assessment (SIL).
