ATEX Assemblies, Panels and Skids
It has always be a requirement under that ATEX assemblies (rigs skids, modular plant) of certified equipment and parts that do not require certification should be assessed as ‘one product’ and provided with an overall approval rather than as a collection of parts. More and more buyers and inspectors require to see a 3rd party certification for an ‘assembly’ with one label plate on the final assembly covering all protection concepts.
ExVeritas are accredited by UKAS accredited to EN60079-14 (for inspecting assemblies and installations) and are an ATEX Notified Body. We offer turnkey approval of ATEX assemblies, from area classification (defining the ATEX Category/EPL requirements) to inspection, even providing the certification plates and labels to attached to the equipment when necessary. For mobile rigs and fleets, we can manage the certification and inspection process using our proprietary ‘iEx’ software.
