IEC System for Ex Certification (IECEx)
Ex certification for all the markets over the world
As you know, it is difficult to make Ex products acceptable to countries around the world. The IECEx program supports you with these difficulties. The purpose of this program is to facilitate the import and export of Ex products.
The IECEx program is a voluntary program based on the International Standard (IEC) for products used in explosive environments. Each certification body accredited as ExCB will accept test reports from other ExCB, dramatically reducing the time required to obtain national certification. DEKRA Certification is accredited as ExCB and ExTL in the IECEx program, so the entire IECEx certification process can be carried out. The IECEx certification process consists of a construction assessment and / or sample testing, an initial audit of the quality assurance system installed at the production site, and an ongoing supervision of this quality assurance system. DEKRA Certification is accredited by the IECEx program, is an accredited organization of the ATEX directive, and has partnered with a number of international testing institutions, so you can launch your product in many markets.
Benefits of IECEx Certification
IECEx program can reduce the costs associated with performing many assessments (and reassessments). In many countries, there are no explosion-proof laws, but internationally recognized certification is required. IECEx certification can provide a solution. The IECEx program allows direct entry into the Australian and New Zealand markets. In addition, the IECEx program will enable small domestic markets to use your products and technologies.
