IECEx Certified Equipment Scheme

​The IECEx Certified Equipment Scheme is an international certification scheme covering products that meet the requirements of international standards, e.g. IEC international standards prepared by the IEC technical committee, IEC/TC 31: Equipment for explosive atmospheres.

The IECEx Certified Equipment Scheme provides the following:

  • A "fast-track" process for countries where regulations still require the issuing of national Ex certificates or approval. This is achieved by way of global acceptance of IECEx Test Reports (ExTRs).
  • A single international Certificate of Conformity (CoC) that requires manufacturers to successfully complete:
    • testing and assessment of samples for compliance with IEC Ex standards; 
    • assessment and auditing of manufacturers premises; and
    • on-going surveillance audits of manufacturers premises

Certificates issued under the IECEx Certified Equipment Scheme are issued as "Electronic Certificates" and are live on the IECEx website. This enables full public access for viewing and printing. Visit the IECEx On-Line Certificate System.
