Current legislation regulates the obligations and responsibilities of persons who perform design, manufacture and use of equipment and installations in potentially explosive atmospheres with regard to compliance with explosion prevention requirements. There are two European Directives, so-called ATEx Directives, which regulate the placing on the European market of products intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres and their safe use: Directive 2014/34/EU and Directive 1999/92/EC. The paper presents some aspects regarding the border situations where the two directives apply, in the case of assemblies of equipment to be assessed by a manufacturer in accordance with the Directive 2014/34/EU for putting on the market and the installations that are equipment assembled by the user under his responsibility and have to be assessed by users toward with the Directive 1999/92/EC requirements.
