Solutions for Potentially Explosive Atmospheres

Your partner for potentially hazardous projects

Business Challenge

If you manufacture, install, integrate or use products and systems intended to be used in potentially explosive atmospheres, how do you navigate the numerous challenges involved in complying with country requirements? Regulations are complex, numerous and far reaching with a high degree of risk. Failure to demonstrate compliance to these requirements makes it impossible to enter the market. So in summary - no mark means no market.

Solution

A European Directive, as well as an international scheme and national regulations, are in place to provide for a safer market. The ATEX regulatory framework protects users of equipment placed in potentially explosive atmospheres.

The IECEx scheme is an international Conformity Assessment Scheme covering Apparatus for Explosive Atmospheres, as the internationally accepted means demonstrating claimed compliance with IEC Standards.

As an International Certification Body under the IECEx scheme, a Notified Body for the application of ATEX Directive 94/9/EC and as a recognized testing laboratory, we can help you comply with regulations worldwide.

Our solutions can help you:
• Access worldwide markets through participation in IECEx Certification Scheme
• Enter European markets through CE marking with Directive ATEX 94/9/EC
• Comply with national level requirements by assisting in compliance with national regulations
