IECEx: EX Equipment Repair and Overhaul Services
Presafe can authorize workshops to perform repairs, rebuilding, etc. of explosion protected equipment. Presafe authorization of workshops is a national scheme whereby participants can get qualified in order that:
- On the basis of their repair and inspection reports, they can receive a confirmation that the equipment is still in accordance with previously issued certificate.
- Equipment can be re-certified based on their inspection reports.
IECEx Service Facility Program
The IECEx Service Facility Program is an international certification scheme that covers the assessment and on-site audit of organizations that provide repair and overhaul services to the Ex industry.
Presafe is one of the first certification bodies approved to operate within the IECEx Service Facility Program. As such Presafe can issue Certificates of Conformity covering Service Facilities for the repair and overhaul of equipment for use in potentially explosive atmospheres.
Ex repair and overhaul Workshops and facilities, certified under the IECEx Certified Service Facilities Program, can provide assurance that repairs and overhaul of Ex equipment is strictly undertaken according to the requirements of the IECEx Scheme and the International Standard IEC 60079-19.
Workshops and facilities that achieve and maintain the IECEx certification are registered in the IECEx online Certificate of Conformity database and may affix the IECEx logo, specific to the scope of certification, to workshop reports and associated documentation.
