Popular Frequently Asked Questions
This ensures we have the correct scope for the project to provide the most accurate firm cost and timescale.
If you do not understand the terms of the certification requires or have not deigned the product to the Standards listed in the certification requires you should consider an Ex Certification Review.
It can save you a lot of time and money as there is little point starting a certification project if the product doesn’t comply with the Standards we will test and assess against.
If you don’t have an accredited ISO9001 or use many concepts it can cost more.
Unit Verification is also available, but this requires each unit to be inspected and listed by serial number on the certificate.
For the ATEX Certification label (with the code and certificate number on etc) it is mandatory that the manufacturers name and address be on the label.
For ATEX (and IECEx) the manufacturer is the person who has the QAN/QAR for the product (they are the responsible company f0or quality, even if the parts/product is bought in from another manufacturer)
You can duel label a product (ATEX/IECEx only control the certification label, not other labels applied to a product)
You cannot remove the certification label, or have a different manufacturer on the certification label (the manufacturer must have the Type |Approval Certificate and QAN/QAR)
If companies want to re-badge completely (remove the OEM) then normally get a certificate in their name (paperwork exercise as it’s based on their OEM certificated) and a QAN/QAR in their name (again, simple process as they are only ‘re-labelling’)
IECEx certification can be added for a small additional cost
