What is the IECEx Scheme?
The purpose of the IECEx Certification is to facilitate the international trade of electrical equipment used in explosive areas (also known as Hazardous Locations – HazLoc). The Scheme allows for reduced certification costs and reduced time to market for the manufacturer, an international database listing on the IECEx website and one simplified process across the board.
What does this mean?
As an ExCB and ExTL, LabTest can assist with getting the necessary approvals for equipment in hazardous locations. Some examples of HazLoc areas include oil refineries, woodworking areas (mills), grain handling and storage, etc.
