GMDSS stands for Global Maritime Distress and Safety System. It is an internationally-agreed upon set of safety procedures, types of equipment, and communication protocols that ships are required to carry and use in order to enhance the safety of life at sea. The system includes the use of satellite and terrestrial radio communications to provide ship-to-ship and ship-to-shore communication, and to transmit distress alerts and location information. The goal of the GMDSS is to increase the likelihood of rescue for ships in distress by allowing them to quickly and easily alert nearby ships and search and rescue authorities to their location and the nature of the emergency.

ATEX stands for “ATmospheres EXplosibles.” It is a set of European Union regulations that govern the design and use of equipment and protective systems intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres. The regulations cover equipment and protective systems that may be used in areas where there is a risk of a explosion due to flammable gases, vapors, dusts, or fibers. The regulations are based on the principles of risk assessment, and aim to prevent explosions and minimize the harm caused by explosions that do occur.

ATEX regulations apply to equipment and protective systems that are used in a wide range of industrial environments, including oil and gas production, petrochemical and chemical processing, food and beverage production, and many other sectors.

ATEX divided in two categories:

ATEX 137 for the workplace (work environment)
ATEX 95 for equipment intended for use in explosive atmospheres (product)
Both categories are applicable in the EU member states and the equipment falling under this regulations must carry a mark and certificate of conformity to ATEX directives
