https://ec.europa.eu/growth/tools-databases/nando/index.cfm?fuseaction=notification.html&ntf_id=309201&version_no=1

What does this mean?

This means that Haz Loc customers who currently use QPS to assist them in obtaining ATEX certification through EU-based partners can continue to use QPS ATEX certification services, with the added benefit that QPS is now authorized to issue ATEX certification directly from our office located at Berg en Dalseweg 122, 6522 BW Nijmegen, The Netherlands

It also means that Haz Loc manufacturers who are looking for an alternative provider of ATEX certification services (Type testing and Quality Audit-QAN) for placing their products on the EU market in a faster and more cost-effective way can now use QPS as their ATEX Notified Body.  

“With the recognition of QPS as an ATEX Notified Body, Haz Loc customers that want to access the EU market as well as the U.S., Canadian and global markets can now work with QPS for a more streamlined one stop service,” said Nick Maalouf, Vice President of External Affairs and Business Development at QPS.

ATEX products certified by QPS will bear the following Certification Mark
