IECEx Service Facility Certification

SGS Baseefa was the first certification body in the world to have its IECEx scope extended to include electrical Service Facility Certification covering Service Facilities for the Repair and overhaul of equipment for use in potentially explosive atmospheres.

Introduction & Operation

IECEx Certificates of Conformity are issued by approved IECEx Certification Bodies (ExCBs).

An IECEx Certificate of Conformity attests that a Service Facility, described on the Certificate, has been independantly assessed and found to have appropriate equipment, competent staff and operate procedures that provide confidence that the repair, overhaul or modification work complies with IECEx requirements, including IEC 60079-19.

It also attests that the Service Facilities site has been audited to verify that the Service Facility meets IECEx requirements, specified in IECEx Operational Document OD 14.

The IECEx Operational Documents listed below provide detailed information concerning the IECEx On-line Certificate of Conformity System for Service Facilities and the process for achieving IECEx Certification.

Enquiries concerning IECEx Certification may be made direct to SGS Baseefa, or alternatively the IECEx Secreteriat.

The SGS Baseefa Service Facility Licence Scheme is for customers who do not require the additional features of the IECEx scheme. This involves the same process and same standards, but the online registration is limited to the SGS Baseefa website.
