ISO/IEC 80079-38:2016 is published as a dual logo standard and specifies the explosion protection requirements for the design, construction, assessment and information for use (maintenance, repair, marking) of equipment that may be an individual item or form an assembly. This includes machinery and components for use in mines susceptible to explosive atmospheres of firedamp and/or combustible
dust. The standard atmospheric conditions (relating to the explosion characteristics of the atmosphere) under which it may be assumed that equipment can be operated are:
- temperature -20 °C to 60 °C;
- pressure 80 kPa (0,8 bar) to 110 kPa (1,1 bar);
- and air with normal oxygen content, typically 21 % v/v. This part of ISO/IEC 80079 applies for equipment and components according to EPL Mb to be used in explosive atmospheres containing firedamp and/or combustible dust. For equipment and components according to EPL Ma, the requirements of this standard and of ISO 80079-36 and IEC 60079-0 apply. It is necessary to take account of external  
conditions to the equipment which may affect the hazard and the resultant protection measures. These measures may include ventilation, gas detection or gas drainage. This part of ISO/IEC 80079 also deals with the prevention of ignitions of explosive atmospheres caused by burning (or smouldering) of combustible material such as fabric fibres, plastic "O"-rings, rubber seals, lubricating oils or greases used in the construction of the equipment if such items could be an ignition source.

This European standard EN 50628 specifies the safety requirements for the erection of electrical installations.
This standard is supplementary to other relevant harmonized standards, for example HD 60364 series and EN 61936-series as regards electrical installation requirements.
This part also refers to EN 60079-0 and its associated standards for the construction, testing and marking requirements of suitable electrical equipment.
EN 60079-14 standard gives the specific requirements for design, selection and erection of electrical installations in explosive atmospheres.
NOTE 1   EN 60079-14 standard can apply to electrical installations in mines where explosive gas atmospheres other than firedamp can be formed and to electrical installations in the surface installation of mines.
NOTE 2   For next edition of EN6079-14 installation requirements for mining equipment might be implemented.
This standard applies to
a)   Electrical installation in underground workings of mines.
b)   Electrical installations and parts of electrical installation above ground, which are directly connected with the underground workings in functional and safety relating matters because of being part of the underground working process.
These are in particular
•   Safety and monitoring devices relating to the power distribution of the underground workings,
•   Telecommunication installation of hoisting and inclined haulage plants,
•   Intrinsically safe electrical installations of above ground installation being part of underground workings,
•   Remote control systems if they have to fulfil increased requirements relating to functional safety,
•   Electrical installation and electrical equipment of ventilation systems and shaft casings above ground being endangered by methane of the underground ventilation,
•   Methane drainage systems.
c)   Electrical installation in underground workings outside mining if it is demanded of the competent national authorities.

This European Standard specifies methods for explosion prevention and protection in mining by outlining the basic concepts and methodology for the design and construction of equipment, protective systems and components.
This European Standard applies to Group I equipment, protective systems and components intended for use in underground parts of mines and those parts of their surface installations at risk from firedamp and/or flammable dust.
NOTE   Detailed information on specific equipment, protective systems and components is contained in the relevant individual standards. Safety-relevant data regarding flammable materials and explosive atmospheres are required for the design and construction of the explosion protection measures.
This European Standard specifies methods for the identification and assessment of hazardous situations that may lead to explosions and describes the design and construction measures appropriate for the required safety. This is achieved by
-   risk assessment;
-   risk reduction.
The safety of equipment, protective systems, and components can be achieved by eliminating hazards and/or limiting the risk, i.e.
a)   by appropriate design (without using safeguarding);
b)   by safeguarding;
c)   by information for use;
d)   by any other preventive measures.
Measures in accordance with a) (prevention) and b) (protection) against explosions are dealt with in clause 6 of this standard, measures according to c) against explosions are dealt with in clause 7 of this standard. Mea¬sures in accordance with d) are not described in this European Standard. They are dealt with in EN ISO 12100:2010, clause 6.
The preventive and protective measures described in this European Standard will not provide the required level of safety unless the equipment, protective systems and components are operated in line with their intended use and are installed and maintained according to the relevant codes of practice or requirements.
This standard is applicable to any equipment, protective systems and components intended to be used in potentially explosive atmospheres. These atmospheres can arise from flammable materials processed, used or released by the equipment, protective systems and components or from materials in the vicinity of the equipment, protective systems and components and/or from the materials of construction of the equipment, protective systems and components.
As shot firing can release potentially explosive atmospheres, this standard is also applicable to the equipment used for shot firing, apart from the explosives and detonators.
This standard is applicable to equipment, protective systems and components at all stages of use.
This standard is not applicable to:
-   medical devices intended for use in a medical environment;
-   equipment, protective systems and components where the explosion hazard results exclusively from the presence of explosives or unstable chemical substances;
-   equipment, protective systems and components where the explosion can result from reaction of substances with oxidising agents other than atmospheric oxygen or by other hazardous reactions or conditions other than atmospheric conditions;
-   equipment intended for use in domestic and non-commercial environments where explosive atmospheres may only rarely be created and solely as a result of the accidental leakage of fuel gas;
-   personal protective equipment covered by Directive 89/686/EEC; the design and construction of systems containing desired, controlled combustion processes, unless they can act as ignition sources in potentially explosive atmospheres;
-   mines where firedamp and/or flammable dust are not naturally present and surface installations such as coal preparation plants, power plants, coke oven plants etc. in which an explosive atmosphere can be present, but which are not part of a coal mine. These are covered by EN 1127-1:2011.

This part of IEC 60079-35 specifies requirements for the construction, testing and marking of caplights, including caplights with a point of connection for other equipment, for use in mines susceptible to firedamp (Group I - electrical equipment for explosive gas atmospheres as defined in IEC 60079-0). It deals only with the risk of the caplight becoming a source of ignition. The requirements for performance are in IEC 60079-35-2.1 This standard supplements and modifies the general requirements of IEC 60079-0 except as indicated in Table 1. Where a requirement of this standard conflicts with a requirement of IEC 60079-0, the requirements of this standard take precedence. Compliance with this standard will provide an EPL of Mb (see 4.1 of this standard). If an EPL of Ma is required, the caplight will need to conform to the requirements of 4.2 of this standard, which in turn refers to IEC 60079-11. It is expected that from time to time, caplights conforming to this standard (EPL Mb) will operate in atmospheres where the firedamp exceeds statutory levels that require the withdrawal of people from the high firedamp atmosphere to a non-hazardous area. In designing equipment for operation in conditions other than those given above, this standard may be used as guidance; however, additional testing may be required. Where a caplight is assessed as intrinsically safe equipment, Ex ia, conforming to IEC 60079- 11 only the clauses/subclauses listed in 4.2 require application.

1.1   This European Standard specifies the safety requirements for armoured face conveyors and covers, conveyor drive units, return units, line pans, chain assemblies, devices for tensioning and locking chains.
This European Standard does not apply to stage loader ancillaries, armoured face conveyors which form part of mineral bunker systems or operate as spillage conveyors, to haulage systems and guides utilised by extraction machines, to the technical requirements for cable-less remote controls, to compressed air powered machines, or to the interfaces between the elements of the conveyor and other machine installations.
Armoured face conveyors are designed for the transport of minerals and rock only.
NOTE   Armoured face conveyors can be used as a base for guiding the extraction machine and as a link between the face roof support and the extraction machine if required.
This European Standard deals with all hazards, hazardous situations and events for the use in mines, when they are used as intended and for the conditions foreseen by the manufacturer.  See clause 4 for the hazards dealt with.
1.2   This European Standard does not cover any hazards resulting from the electrical equipment associated with the machine.  It does not contain any requirements relating to dust suppression or firedamp hazards. Hazards due to noise are also excluded from this European Standard, but a separate European Standard is in preparation where hazards due to noise will be addressed.
It is intended for manufacturers producing and marketing complete machines, and for manufacturers assembling new parts from different origins or assembling new machines even for their own use.  These are called "manufacturers" in this European Standard.
1.3   This European Standard applies to armoured face conveyors which are manufactured after the date of issue of this European Standard.

This International Standard specifies requirements for rubber- or plastics-covered conveyor belting of textile construction for underground mining on flat or troughed idlers. It is not applicable to light conveyor belts as described in ISO 21183-1. This International Standard does not include requirements for plastics covers. These will need to be agreed upon by the manufacturer and purchaser, taking into account the type of plastics to be used. Related items that are not requirements of this International Standard, but which it is recommended be agreed upon by the manufacturer and purchaser, are included in Annex A. Details recommended to be supplied by the purchaser of belting with an enquiry are given in Annex B. The ability of a belt to run straight cannot be assessed until the belt is installed. Requirements for this are, therefore, outside the scope of this International Standard; nevertheless, recommendations for lateral drift are given in Annex C.

This document applies to air shutter frames and air doors for ventilation structures which are to remain functional after the passage of explosions with overpressures of up to 2 bar.
Ventilation structures are protective systems to provide the ventilation flow after the occurrence of an explosion such that the effects of an explosion on the ventilation system can be limited and adequate possibilities remain for escape and rescue.
NOTE   These structures may be used when ventilation studies indicate that the air flow in the work place would be reduced considerably providing no safe escape for workers in cases where the structure is destroyed. Explosion proof ventilation structures will be individually evaluated for directional stability of ventilation flows and in order to ensure adequate ventilation flows.
