About Explosion Protection Services

DEKRA is a recognized European Notified Body for testing, assessments and certification of products designed to work in dangerous atmospheres or in potentially explosive environments, including petrol stations, gas containers or combustion energy transportation and storehouses.

Our explosion safety specialists assess and certify according to the ATEX Directive 2014/34/EU, among others. Additionally, we are a founding member of the globally acknowledged IECEx scheme, through which we provide services both as a certification body (ExCB) and as a testing laboratory (ExTL).

DEKRA is in the process of applying to become a UK Approved Body to deliver UKEX certification. This accreditation will allow DEKRA to deliver UKCA marking under the UKEX scheme for market entry into Great Britain.

DEKRA offers one-stop certification to our clients, combining actions to prevent duplication of activities.
