The global demand for hazardous locations (HazLoc) equipment has grown in recent years and will continue to grow.

Applicable regulations require that manufacturers prove that their equipment meets the requirements for use in HazLoc. It is critical that manufacturers of HazLoc equipment understand and accept this responsibility and demonstrate their commitment to safety and quality – for their business and their customers.

This webinar will help you understand the individual requirements of the following certifications for HazLoc products: North American, IECEx, ATEX, and UKCA.

Understanding these certification requirements will help you consider:

Certifications of equipment intended for use in explosive atmospheres (hazardous locations) around the world are all based on standards and defined protocols.

  • Explore existing global certification requirements
