NEC Hazardous Area Inspection

EUTEX leads the way with NEC 500 Inspection Checklist (ICLtm)

From inception over a decade ago, EUTEX has without a doubt, been the go-to company and is seen as the Global leader in Hazardous Area Compliance. EUTEX has achieved this standing by providing a no-nonsense range of compliance services, driven by staff with intimate experience of International Standards & Codes.

Our approved ICL™ functionality assures that there is expertise, impartiality, and auditable procedures in line with guidance followed from:

  • NEC 500
  • API RP 500
  • API RP 14

EUTEX staff are certified, highly skilled hazardous-area professionals who ensure all inspections are carried out in line with these ANSI requirements – ICL™ is the only known digitized system that provides a means of proving compliance for National Electric Code installations (instead of the extents of the IEC inspection tables that are not wholly appropriate for ANSI equipment).

ICL™ Inspections are managed by our appointed Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ’s) who have vast industrial experience as well as indepth knowledge of the standards by:

  • American Petroleum Institute (API)
  • National Fire Protection Association (NFPA),
  • International Society of Automation (ISA)
  • International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC)

ICL™ can be tailored to suit most budgets whilst allowing the required accurate documentation to be provided ensuring that all equipment is tagged and verified as compliant to the required clauses.

Our detailed reporting outlines all of the tasks required to make the area compliant and safe, plus any remedial actions are identified or can be rectified as part of a very efficient strategy.

With ICL™, ATEC carries out inspection & maintenance campaigns effectively, whilst building up & utilizing the digital technology’s metadata to interpret the requirements being mandated to comply with, whilst implementing robust Risk-Based Inspection strategies.
