As part of the harmonisation, the
New Approach Directives provide for CE marking of all equipment. For
equipment under the Atex directive, the CE mark designates conformity with the
Directive and the assessment procedures. It also signifies conformity with all
other applicable directives. Where a Notified Body is involved in the
production-control phase of a product, its identification number must accompany
European Community CE mark (see below).
0102 = PTB Germany
Atex equipment must also bear
Ex –hexagon logo (see below) as used previously but must be followed by the symbol
of the Group and Category. For Group II equipment the letter "G" for gases,
vapours or mists and/or the letter "D" for dusts must also appear. Components
kept outside the hazardous area (associated equipment), must have the Category
enclosed in brackets ( ).
