Harmonised standards and their presumption of conformity

In addition to the instructions manual, the manufacturer shall also supply a declaration of conformity in accordance with Annex X of Directive 2014/34/EU with every item of explosionproof equipment.

Among other things, the declaration of conformity shall include references to the relevant harmonised standards or other technical specifications.
The harmonised standards shall comply with the list published in the Official Journal of the European Union («OJ»). Only those harmonized standards that are valid at the time of placing products on the market can be applied for the presumption of conformity.
