We are pleased to announce that QPS Europe B.V. is a fully accredited  Notified Body under the ATEX Directive and listed in the European NANDO Database with the Notified Body Number 2876

This means that Hazardous Location equipment manufacturers in Europe, North America and around the world can now 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 manufacturers who are looking for an alternative provider of ATEX certification services (EU Type Certificates, Type Certificates, Unit Verification and Quality Assurance Notifications 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. 

ATEX PRODUCTS WHICH HAVE A QUALITY ASSurance notification by qps europe are allowed to place the following mark.


“With the recognition of QPS as an ATEX Notified Body, and also a location in the Netherlands, 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.
