It is a possible way forward.

Manufacturer may apply for it whenever 3rd party certification is not mandatory, but it makes sense E.g for marketing reasons.

Possible cases might be:

  • Electrical: cat 3
  • Non.electrical: cat 2 and 3

In that case ATEX Notified Body shall not place its nr on the certificate, E.g NB 2684. Which means not immediately a failure at the time of inspection.

Keep up good work.
