Declaration of Conformity
CPD – Construction Products Directive (89/106/EEC)
The Construction Products Directive relates to building materials and
equipment fixed to the structure of the building. One section of the directive
relates to Safety In Case Of Fire and mandate 109 requires that all fire
detection and alarm equipment is third party certified to the relevant
Harmonised European standard. In most cases this will be a part of the EN54
suite of standards.
EMC – Electromagnetic Compatibility (2004/108/EC)
The Electromagnetic Compatibility Directive is a CE marking Directive, but it
differs from all other Directives in that its primary requirement is the protection
of the electromagnetic spectrum, rather than the safety of the equipment. The
vast majority of electrical products must comply, whether battery or mains
powered.
LVD – Low Voltage Directive (2006/95/EC)
This CE marking directive came into effect in January 2007 to replace
directive 73/23/EEC, in the interests of clarity and rationality. It applies to all
apparatus running on an AC supply between 50 - 1000 volts or on a DC
supply between 75 - 1500 volts. The directive refers exclusively to the supply
voltage or that at output terminals; internal voltages do not affect whether a
product falls within the scope of this directive.
ATEX – Equipment intended for use in Potentially Explosive
Atmospheres (94/9/EC)
The ATEX directive is two EU directives describing what equipment and work
environment is allowed in an environment with an explosive atmosphere.
As of July 2006, organizations in EU must follow the directives to protect
employees from explosion risk in areas with an explosive atmosphere.
There are two ATEX directives (one for the manufacturer and one for the user
of the equipment):
1. The ATEX 95 equipment directive 94/9/EC, Equipment and protective
systems intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres;
2. The ATEX 137 workplace directive 99/92/EC, Minimum requirements
for improving the safety and health protection of workers potentially at
risk from explosive atmospheres.
ATEX gets its name from the French title of the 94/9/EC directive: Appareils
destinés à être utilisés en ATmosphères EXplosibles
IECEx – International Electrotechnical Commission System for
Certification to Standards relating to Equipment for use in Explosive
Atmospheres
The objective of the IECEx System is to facilitate international trade in
equipment and services for use in explosive atmospheres, while maintaining
the required level of safety:
reduced testing and certification costs to manufacturer
reduced time to market
international confidence in the product assessment process
one international database listing
maintaining International Confidence in equipment and services covered by
IECEx Certification
