New standard for mechanical explosion protection: EN ISO 80079-36 and -37

New standard for mechanical explosion protection:  EN ISO 80079-36 and -37

With effect from 2016, the previously well-known standards EN 13463-1:2009 and EN 13462-5:2011 'c' were replaced by the latest generation of standards EN 80079-36:2016-12 'h' and EN 80079-37:2016-12 'h'.

A presumption of conformity applies to the earlier standard. This means that, during a transitional period of three years (until May 2019) this does not lose its validity.

Caution: Consider competitors' behaviour and customer behaviour. It can be assumed that equipment complying with the new standard is already in circulation, and that in the medium term, customers or IECEx national bodies will demand the new designation.
