ISO 9001:2015

This is an updated version of the ISO 9001:2008 standard and was published in September 2015. There is a 3-year transition period allowed for companies such as Thames Side Sensors Ltd., who are already certified to ISO 9001:2008. We are continuously improving our QMS (Quality Management System) and we do not envisage any difficulty in complying with ISO 9001:2015 before the end of the transition period.


ATEX Equipment Directive, 2014/34/EU (formerly 94/9/EC)

This directive entered into force on 20th April 2016 and has been carefully reviewed by our experienced ATEX personnel. It replaced the previous ATEX 95 Equipment Directive 94/9/EC (also known as Article 100a and Article 95). There were some significant changes introduced in the new edition of the directive, but these are mainly administrative and only concern the Notified Bodies. There are no additional compliance requirements placed upon Thames Side Sensors Ltd. and there are no changes to the Essential Health and Safety Requirements in Annex II.

ATEX certificates issued prior to April 2016 will still be valid.
