Explosive Atmosphere Testing and Certification

TRaC helps explosive atmosphere manufacturers test and certify their products so they can be distributed to the global market.

TRaC is the ideal partner for manufacturers of electronic devices for use in potentially explosive or hazardous atmospheres. We help with testing and certification for explosive atmospheres across a variety of industries:

  • Petrochemical
  • Oil and Gas
  • Mining
  • Food processing
  • Aircraft refuelling
  • Pharmaceuticals

We provide testing and qualification services that allow products to be operated in these hazardous working environments and enable manufacturers to gain access to the global market. Working with the manufacturers of these explosive atmosphere products from the initial design stage, our Early Stage Qualification (ESQ®) services support them through the highly complex nature of qualification testing and help mitigate delays in time to market. Our ESQ expertise comes from testing thousands of different products every year and allows us to help companies meet critical time-to-market deadlines and limit possible loss in revenue if your product fails to meet the delivery date.

TRaC is BS EN ISO/IEC 17025:2005 and ISO/IEC 17065:2012 UKAS accredited, a Notified Body (NB) for the ATEX Directive, an IECEx Certification Body (ExCB) and an IECEx Testing Laboratory (ExTL). We have registered test facilities in the UK and the US and a wide range of testing and certification services that help our clients gain access to international markets.

There are different worldwide certification schemes that define safety levels of products for use in hazardous areas, such as oil and gas, petrochemical, aerospace and military refuelling. Although safety is the driving force behind all the schemes, their products scope, classification of application areas and qualification requirements vary depending on the country of operation.

We can help clients obtain local certification that gives access to the global market. TRaC's testing and certification experts can determine which certification scheme is most suitable for your equipment and help you meet the requirements of global explosive atmosphere protection standards and directives.
