CompEx Ex11 Mechanical Competence Certification
CompEx Ex11 has been created for non-electrically qualified engineers to gain a qualification in explosion safety to National Standards. ATEX (DSEAR) requires users to identify all possible ignition sources that could arise in hazardous areas. The identification of these ignition sources includes non-electrical (mechanical) items of equipment (in addition to electrical equipment covered by Ex01-04). The safety measures for non-electrical equipment used in hazardous areas not only include the design (and possible certification) of equipment but also the aspects required for safe selection, installation, maintenance, inspection and repair.
Non-Electrical Explosion Safety has now also gone ‘international’ with the publication of IEC non-electrical equipment standards for explosive atmospheres and IECEx certification of such equipment.
The CompEx Ex11 covers both ATEX (European) and International (IEC) requirements as ExVeritas are a certification body for both ATEX and IECEx non-electrical equipment and are verified and accredited specialists in this field.
