Questions from the commission

Questions from the Commission

A T E X

“The Commission would like to know the general situation of the ATEX sector in Iceland, so as to have an idea of the scope in specific industrial sectors.”

A- Directive 94/9/EC (ATEX-eqipment) was implemented by the Icelandic Fire Authority with regulation 77/1996: “Reglugerð um búnað og verndarkerfi til notkunar á sprengihættustöðum.”

  • The regulation provides the regulatory framework for equipment use and operation in the main explosive atmosphere establishments and sites in Iceland, such as fuel (oil and gas) installations (gas in generally not used for residential heating or home supply of fuel gas in Iceland).

  • The requirements of this regulation are well established in the fuel distribution sector and by their service engineers. Electric systems for explosive atmosphere generally, e.g. spark-free equipment, have prior to 77/1996 been a standard in many other types of installation and are specified in the building code (see e.g. RER Message 2/92 and ÍST 200:2006 Electrical installations of buildings).


Questions atex cont

Questions – ATEX cont.

  • Inspectors, assisted by AOSH specialists, inspect larger workplaces with respect to ATEX. Emphasis is on new companies and those who do not have an established ATEX procedure, e.g. new bio-fuel, biogas as well as the larger industries, including:

    -primary metal producers,

    -polymer processors,

    -grain stockists,

    -fish meal plants,

    -bio-diesel plants

  • Smaller enterprises, such as food processing units, farms, carpentries, wood works and other smaller industries, can also be prone to explosion risks, the emphasis of AOSH there is to inform them and guide their efforts to reduce the risks.


Questions from the commission1

Questions from the Commission

NOISE DIRECTIVE

“According to our screening of November 2009 it appears as if Iceland transposed the outdated noise emission legislation (directives 79/113/EEC, 84/532/EEC, 84/534/EEC as mentioned in Annexes 1-5A 0-5B of the Island file) but not necessarily the Noise Directive 2000/14/EC. Or, to say it in other way: If Directive 2000/14/EC has been transposed into the national legislation there should be no additional legislation setting out noise emission requirements as laid down in the outdated directives 79/113/EEC, 84/532/EEC, 84/534/EEC as mentioned in Annexes 1-5A 0-5B of the Iceland file.

Commission needs more information concerning the situation with regard to the Noise Directive 2000/14/EC.”

In the questionnaire list from Icel. in 2009 this was mentioned:

“Rules No. 279/2003 on noise pollution of the environment resulting from the use of technical equipment designed for outdoor use. These rules implement the Directive 2000/14/EC on the approximation of the laws of the Member States relating to the noise emission in the environment by equipment for use outdoors.”
