Verification & Certification of Assemblies of Hazardous Area Equipment
Provides assurance that recognised best practice has been employed in the selection and construction of the assembly.
Accredited certification bodies such as DNV can provide third party assessment and certification for such assemblies on a voluntary basis to provide assurance that recognised best practice has been employed in the selection and construction of the assembly.
For applications where ATEX or IECEx Unit Verification is required, DNV perform a full evaluation of component parts according to the appropriate international standards and codes of practice to issue a Certificate of Conformity.
Our IECEx Certification Body and ATEX Notified Body services are issued by our joint-venture entity DNV Nemko Presafe AS in Oslo, Norway.
