Introduction and Operational Manuals

The IECEx “On-Line” Certificate of Conformity System provides for the issuing of IECEx Certificates of Conformity, covering Ex Equipment for Use in Explosive Atmospheres.

IECEx Certificates of Conformity are issued by approved IECEx Certification Bodies (ExCBs). An IECEx Certificate of Conformity attests that a sample of the Ex product, described on the Certificate, has been independently tested and found to comply with the International Standards listed in the Certificate. It also attests that the manufacturing site has been audited to verify that the manufacturer’s quality system meets IECEx requirements, specified in IECEx Operational Document OD 005.

The IECEx selected relevant Operational Documents listed below provide detailed information concerning the IECEx “On-Line” Certificate of Conformity System for Ex Equipment and the processes for achieving IECEx Certification. Inquiries concerning IECEx Certification may be made direct to any of the IECEx Certification Bodies or the IECEx Secretariat.
