Thames Side Sensors ISO 9001:2015 logo

ISO 9001:2015 (previously ISO 9001:2008)

At Thames Side Sensors we are extremely proud of our unrelenting commitment to Quality, which is demonstrated by our certification to the latest ISO 9001:2015 standard and our exceptionally low warranty claim rate.

You can view the Thames Side Sensors Quality Policy here.

ISO 9001:2015 is the updated version of the previous ISO 9001:2008 standard and it was published in September 2015. For companies such as Thames Side Sensors Ltd., who were already certified to ISO 9001:2008, a 3-year transition period was granted so it was not essential for us to comply with this new standard until September 2018.  However, we are obsessed with constantly improving our QMS (Quality Management System) and we worked very hard to ensure that we were certified more than 1 year before the 2018 deadline.

RoHS 2 Directive 2011/65/EU


RoHS 2 Directive, 2011/65/EU

All of our products are manufactured in accordance with Article 4(1). The official company statement can be found here.


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

Thames Side Sensors Limited can supply equipment that complies with the above directives for use in potentially explosive amospheres, in gas zones 0-1-2 and dust zones 20-21-22.

This directive entered into force on 20th April 2016 and was carefully reviewed by our experienced ATEX experts. 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.
