Standards explosive atmosphere

New Dutch publications are now available from the directive NEN-EN-IEC 60079 ‘Explosieve atmosferen’ part 0, 10-1, 10-2 and 14. With these translations all standards in this range are up to date again.

The most important alteration is the integration of explosive gas atmospheres (NEN-EN-IEC 60079) and explosive dust atmospheres (NEN-EN-IEC 61241).

The EN 954-1 can be used until December 31, 2011

It is decided that the EN 954-1 can be used until 31-12-2011. This means an end to a period of uncertainty for machine builders and engineers.

It is inevitable for this moment to come closer. On December 31, 2011, each machine builder will have to switch to the Performance Level (PL) or Safety Inegrity Level (SIL).
