This document uses the redraft law to modify and adopt IEC TS 60079-46:2017 "Explosive atmospheres - Part 46: Equipment assemblies".
The technical differences between this document and IEC TS 60079-46:2017 and their reasons are as follows:
- As for the normative references, this document has made adjustments with technical differences, to adapt to the technical conditions of China. The adjustments are mainly reflected in Clause 2 “Normative references”. The specific adjustments are as follows:
 Replace IEC 60079-0 with GB/T 3836.1 which modifies and adopts the
international standard (see Clause 1, etc.);
 Replace IEC 60079-10-1 with GB 3836.14 which is identical to the
international standard (see 4.3.2);
 Replace IEC 60079-14 with GB/T 3836.15 which modifies and adopts the
international standard (see Clause 3, etc.);
 Replace ISO/IEC 80079-34 with GB/T 3836.21 which modifies and adopts the international standard (see 4.4);
 Replace ISO 80079-36 with GB/T 3836.28 which modifies and adopts the
international standard (see Clause 1, etc.);
 Replace IEC 60079-10-2 with GB/T 3836.35 which modifies and adopts the international standard (see 4.3.2);
 Replace IEC 60079 (all parts) and ISO 80079 (all parts) with GB/T 3836 (all parts). See Annex A for the degree of consistency between parts;
 Delete IEC 60079-25 and move the corresponding GB/T 3836.18 to
The following editorial changes have been made to this document:
- In order to be consistent with the existing standard series, change the name of this document to "Explosive atmospheres - Part 34: Equipment assemblies";
- Add Note 3 about the equipment assembly used in underground coal mines (see Clause 1);
- Add a note on 3.1 "Equipment assembly";
- Delete the note on 3.2 "Assembly certificate";
- Add a note about GB/T 2900.35 (see Clause 3);
- Add the Bibliography.

1 Scope
This document specifies requirements for the design, construction, assembly, testing, inspection, marking, documenting and assessment of equipment assemblies for use in explosive atmospheres under the responsibility of the manufacturer of the equipment assembly.
The requirements of this document apply to individual items according to GB/T 3836 (all parts) that comprise the assembly and that have individual certificates. These individual items are then integrated as part of the equipment assembly. Also included are requirements to address aspects for the assembly which may be beyond the certificates of the individual items forming the assembly.
The scope of this document includes assessment of the additional requirements for assemblies for hazardous areas and does not include requirements for non-hazardous areas. It is assumed that compliance with other electrical or mechanical requirements that are applicable for non-hazardous areas will be verified by either the same or different party in addition to the requirements of this document.
This document does not apply to:
- equipment which is covered, in its entirety, by one or more GB/T 3836 equipment types of protection;
- pressurized rooms, “p”, in accordance with GB/T 3836.17, artificial ventilation for the protection of analyzer(s) houses in accordance with IEC TR 60079-16, and other standards addressing specific Ex assemblies;
- installation at the end-user site under the scope of GB/T 3836.15;
- classification of the hazardous area;
- inherently explosive situations and dust from explosives or pyrophoric substances (for example explosives manufacturing and processing);
- rooms used for medical purposes;
- electrical installations in areas where the hazard is due to flammable mist. This document is only intended to provide validation for the initial supply of an assembly.
Note 1: Additional guidance on the requirements for hazardous atmospheres due to hybrid mixtures of flammable dust or flyings and flammable gas or vapour is provided in GB/T 3836.15. Where a requirement of this document conflicts with a requirement of either GB/T 3836.1 or GB/T 3836.28, the requirement of this document takes precedence. Note 2: The only requirements of this document that take precedence over GB/T 3836.1 and GB/T 3836.28 are the markings for equipment assemblies.
Note 3: This document does not consider the special circumstances of underground coal mines; but the equipment assembly for underground coal mines may refer to it for use. 2 Normative references
