It engages in its work under the 2014/34/EU Directive (known as the ATEX Directive – Atmosphères Explosives) and Minister for National Economy Decree 35/2016 (Sep 27) NGM, which regulates the testing and certification of equipment and protection systems intended to be used in potentially explosive environments.ExVA Kft. also has its own accredited test laboratory, which provides the technical backdrop during tests.



In addition to being designated in the EU under Directive 2014/34/EU, ExVA Kft. is a member of the international IECEx organisation (International Electrotechnical Commission System for Certification to Standards Relating to Equipment for Use in Explosive Atmospheres, IECEx System). IECEx System is also a global certification system, which also engages in standardisation work for standards applicable to equipment used in explosive environments.


Fire Prevention

Pursuant to Act XXXI of 1996 Article 13, the marketing, distribution and installation of devices, machines and equipment posing a fire or explosion hazard is only permitted in possession of a fire-prevention compliance certificate.ExVA Kft. – as a certification body duly designated by the Ministry of Interior of Hungary – is authorised to conduct the testing required for such fire-prevention compliance certificates, and to issue the certificates.


Repair Workshop Auditing
