IECEx Certification

IECEx Certification 

Accredited IECEx Certification Body and Test Laboratory

ExVeritas can provide IECEx Certification for products and Quality Systems required to manufacture IECEx Products. We have full in house capability and over 200 collective years experience in providing IECEx Certification. The Certification can be conducted at our IECEx accredited laboratories in the UK or at manufacturers locations for certain types of test. We can provide IECEx Certification in parallel with ATEX Certification (we are an ATEX Notified Body) or with other international certification schemes.

ExVeritas is one of only around 25 in the world that can issue both ATEX Notified Body Certificates and IECEx Certificates

If you are new to IECEx Certification and have not designed your equipment to a specific ‘protection concept’ or IECEx harmonised standards, we would suggest that you start with a design review to ensure that you are starting the right project and know what to expect. We can normally complete this review within a couple of weeks and it can save you a great deal of time and money. Click here for more information on our Ex Certification Review service

IECEx Quality Assurance Registration (QAR)

Exveritas conduct manufacturing audits (as an IECEX Certification  Body)  that can lead to IECEx Quality Assurance Registration being issued if the findings are satisfactory.  IECEx Quality Assurance Registration is required for all IECEx Product Certification other than Unit Verification.
