IECEx Certification

In today’s technologically advanced world, industries such as oil and gas, mining, chemicals, and pharmaceuticals rely heavily on electrical equipment to function efficiently. However, when operating in potentially explosive atmospheres, there is an inherent need for safety and compliance with international standards. This is where the IECEx Certification Scheme comes into play, ensuring that electrical equipment meets the highest safety requirements. At Eutex International, as a certified IECEx Service Facility, we are your trusted partner when it comes to obtaining IECEx Certificates for your equipment or assemblies. Let us guide you through the complex world of IEC standards, ensuring your success in hazardous environments.

IEC Standards and IEC 60079

The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) has developed a comprehensive set of standards that establish the requirements for equipment intended for use in explosive atmospheres. Among these standards, IEC 60079 is the cornerstone, defining the safety measures for the design, selection, installation, and maintenance of electrical equipment in hazardous locations. Adhering to these standards is vital to ensure operational safety, minimize the risk of explosions, and protect personnel and assets.

IECEx Certification Scheme: Obtaining an IECEx Certificate of Conformity demonstrates your commitment to safety and compliance in potentially explosive atmospheres. The IECEx Certification Scheme is internationally recognized and provides assurance that your electrical equipment meets the stringent requirements outlined in the IEC standards. It allows manufacturers to gain market access by verifying compliance and facilitating international trade in equipment for use in explosive environments.

Equipment Protection Level (EPL)

The IECEx Certification Scheme classifies equipment into different Equipment Protection Levels (EPLs), each denoting the level of protection against potential explosions. The EPLs range from “Ga” (highest level of protection) for use in gas atmospheres to “Da” (highest level of protection) for use in dust atmospheres. Our experts at Eutex International have in-depth knowledge of these levels and can guide you in selecting the appropriate equipment for your specific operational requirements, which is not always linear depending on the consequence of an incident.
