Notified Bodies

Unlike the Cenelec Standards, which nominated approved Testing Authorities, Atex permits Member States to nominate their own approval bodies under Mutual Recognition Agreements. Member States rely on their official Competent Authority (in Ireland, the Health & Safety Authority) to assess bodies who meet the criteria set down in the Directive. Member States may notify the Council and other Member States of the bodies it wishes to be regarded as Notified Bodies. An identification number is allocated to each Notified Body and is used in CE marking. It is the responsibility of the Member State to ensure that their Notified Bodies meet and continue to meet the criteria set down in the Directive. Notified Bodies may be designated as notified for different requirements of the Directive (e.g. one body may be notified as competent for Product/Production Quality only and another body for Quality, Testing, Conformity etc.). The full current list may be obtained at the following link:
