Product certification starts with the assessment of a design. The product is tested and assessed according to standards defining the requirements for a specific type of protection. Based on the results of the assessment and/or testing, a product certificate can be issued. Most common is the combination of an ATEX EU Type Approval certificate with a IECEx certificate of conformity. . Many variations are possible, such as unit verification, ATEX or IECEx only. Which option fits best, depends on your situation.
