Hazloc Testing and Certification

TRaC can provide explosive atmosphere equipment testing and certification in the UK for the US and Canada.

We provide Hazloc assessment beyond equipment testing and certification; additionally we offer manufacturers factory inspections and field evaluations as required by the applicable explosion protection standards for North America.

Only classified equipment may be used in hazardous locations in North America. This equipment is classified using the same criteria as the hazardous location and carries clear marking to this effect. All hazardous location equipment must be certified by a third party Nationally Recognised Testing Laboratory (NRTL) or Standards Council of Canada (SCC) certification body.
