The transposition of the ATEX 94/9/EC Directive to the 2014/34/EU directive

Transposition of the ATEX 94/9/EC Directive to the 2014/34/EU Directive 

We often have many questions such as the following:

  • From what date a manufacturer must refer to the new ATEX Directive 2014/34/EU in its EU declaration of conformity ?
  • Should the EC declaration of conformity has to match the new EU reporting format?
  • Should manufacturer have to refer to the two directives specifying the date of repeal of the 94/9/EC and the date of application of the 2014/34/EU?
  • Can manufacturer implement these new documents now?
  • ...

The list could be continued again.
Because of all these kind of questions the European Commission has published on 10.15.2015, publication in English language only has the time or of writing.
