TC6 Equipment for Potentially Explosive Atmospheres

NSAI ETC TC 6 Equipment for Potentially Explosive Atmospheres

NSAI ETC TC6 is responsible for co-ordinating the development of standards for equipment for use where there is a hazard due to the possible presence of explosive atmospheres of gases, vapours, mists or combustible dusts. TC6 members are active participants in the international standards work of IEC TC31, which was established over 60 years ago, and also CENELEC TC31. IEC and CENELEC standards cover the life cycle of equipment for use in potentially explosive atmospheres through design, manufacture, installation, maintenance and repair. The area of potentially explosive atmospheres is subject to two EU Directives; Directive 2014/34/EU which covers equipment and protective systems and Directive 1999/92/EC which covers the safety and health protection of workers potentially at risk.
