IECEX Scheme updated for Hydrogen Fuel Dispensers

Dec 7, 2022 | Schemes Updates

The IECEx Certified Equipment Scheme have published OD 290  – Harmonized procedures for IECEx certification of equipment, components and systems associated with the production, dispensing and use of gaseous hydrogen. ExCBs and ExTLs such as ExVeritas are required to apply these publications to all new applications for certification of Hydrogen dispensing equipment and dispensing units, treated as assemblies according to IEC TS 60079-46, from today, 7 December 2023.

The new operational document outlines tests to be conducted when assessing gaseous hydrogen dispensers, they include:

  • Leakage test
  • Impact test
  • Dispenser shutdown test
  • Hose rupture
  • Hose breakaway test
  • Electrostatic discharge test
  • Earth (ground) continuity
  • Dielectric voltage-withstand test
  • IP Tests

ExVeritas are very experienced with fuel dispenser testing and in addition to IECEx accreditation have UKAS accreditation for these tests and the ability to issue both ATEX, UKCA and IECEx Certification for all types of fuel dispenser (including Hydrogen) in one test program.
