IECEx Non-Electrical Certification

IECEx Non-Electrical Certification

We are specialists in Non-Electrical Certification, we have significant experience with all types of machinery and we can also issue reports to the Machinery Directive and SIL/Functional Safety. We are Accredited for all types of Ex Non-Electrical Certification and can issue IECEx Certificates for all EPL Levels of protection (Ga, Gb, Gc and Da, Db Dc)

We are amongst the very first IECEx Certification Bodies to be able to issue IECEx non-electrical Certification. We have a long history (over 20 years experience) issuing ATEX non-electrical certificates and have specialist staff and equipment for mechanical and non-electrical approval. Our IECEx scope of acceptance  includes IECEx non-electrical Standards:

  • ISO 80079-36 Part 36: Non-electrical equipment for explosive atmospheres “ Basic method and requirements
  • ISO 80079-37 Part 37: Non-electrical equipment for explosive atmospheres “ Non electrical type of protection constructional safety, control of ignition source, liquid immersion.

The new IECEx non-electrical certification will allow manufactures to achieve internationally recognised IECEx Certification for all types of equipment and is also covered by the QAR (Quality Assurance) programme so that multiple units can be manufactured without 100% inspection being required.

In addition to IECEx non-electrical equipment, KCS was one of the first IECEx Certification Bodies (Associate in UAE) to include assemblies to EN60079-14 (for which we are also accredited) making us the obvious choice for turnkey approval of large and complex rigs, skids and modular plant. We have extensive experience with most oil tools and work for some of the largest oil rig and tool manufacturing companies in the world.

We also offer Ex Training for people working with non-electrical equipment (CompEx EX11 Mechanical). Our courses include the new ISO 80079-36 & 37 requirements.
