It is an internationally recognised scheme designed to assess a persons knowledge and skills for working in hazardous areas by way of written and practical assessment, with the outcome being an IECEx Certification of Personnel Competence for an individual.

The online certificate includes photo identification of the holder and the certificate can be viewed by anyone for verification on the IECEx website @

The aim of an IECEx Certificate of Personnel Competence is to provide employers and organisations with confidence that personnel working in or around explosive atmospheres, or that can affect the safety of hazardous areas, hold the required competence to carry out their role correctly and safely.  It is like a passport of sorts for hazardous area workers who may operate across multiple countries and jurisdictions.

IECEx CoPC is broken into Ex Units which cover various roles in industry for example; installation, maintenance, inspection, overhaul, design, classification, and auditing. Depending on the person’s job function.


Ex 000 – Basic knowledge and awareness

Ex 001 – Apply basic principles of protection in explosive atmospheres

Ex 002 – Perform classification of hazardous areas

Ex 003 – Install explosion-protected equipment and wiring systems

Ex 004 – Maintain equipment in explosive atmospheres

Ex 005 – Overhaul and repair of explosion-protected equipment

Ex 006 – Test electrical installations in or associated with explosive atmospheres

Ex 007 – Perform visual & close inspection of electrical installations in or associated with explosive atmospheres

Ex 008 – Perform detailed inspection of electrical installations in or associated with explosive atmospheres

Units Ex 003 to Ex 008 require practical examinations on hardware, in addition to the written examinations that apply for all units. The practical examinations are currently held at our examination centers in the UAE, Qatar, Oman and Saudi (KSA). There is more flexibility in where the written examinations can take place.

We have structured multi-level Personnel Competency training courses for those who are required to perform duties such as selection and installation, inspection and maintenance of Ex equipment in potentially explosive areas.

Note – Training is not mandatory for appearing for the IECEx CoPC assessment and experienced candidates can directly take up the Assessment.
