ATEX, IECEx and Global Ex Certification
We are an ATEX Notified Body, IECEx Certification Body (IECEx CB) and Test Laboratory’ (IECEx TL)
There is only one way to get ‘on time’ and fixed cost EX and CE Certification, and that is to submit the product ‘right first time’ with the correct test samples and documents. We pre-test and assess products as necessary to ensure the product is compliant and certification is ‘right first time’. Our experience ensures you get certification on time, and with the best specification for global sales.For all of our Ex testing and certification there will be one quote, one point of contact and direct access to the experienced certification Engineers who will endeavour to help you through the certification process.
Different types of equipment may require different types of Ex Certification, and some types of equipment are excluded from Ex Certification altogether. Please contact us and we will let you know what you need and the most cost effective and expedient route to obtaining it.
If you require North American or Canadian hazardous area listing in parallel with ATEX, we offer a full advise and certification service through several leading North American OSHA organisations and we can ensure that your design and concepts will be suitable for both Hazardous Area listing and safe location requirements such as IEC601010, which are often mandatory.

EX Certification Design Review
If you are new to ATEX, IECEx or Hazardous Area Certification and have not designed your equipment to a specific ‘protection concept’ or harmonised standard, we would suggest that you start with a design review to ensure that you have something to submit that is ‘suitable for certification’. Certification Bodies quote certification costs on the assumption that the product they are testing is compliant and will pass, if you haven’t made the product compliant, the final certification bill can be four or five times higher than the quoted cost (and so can the time to certification!). Design reviews also ensure that you have the best possible scope of certification and have considered all international markets for hazardous location certification.

ATEX and IECEx Quality Audits
We are experienced auditors for both ISO 9001 and ATEX/IECEx Quality Modules. We can conduct pre-audits for companies looking to obtain accreditation or conduct final audits (as a Notified Body or IECEx Certification Body) so that Quality Certification can be issued.
