On-Site Inspections:

MASC can assess or test the enclosure according to the most recent standard in order to issue a new IA certificate.
The repair work can be carried out by a permit holder, alternatively the repair work conducted must be evaluated by MASC.
The product OEM or supplier must supply a IA certificate with the equipment supplied.
MASC can perform inspections / audits according to the relevant standard requirements.

Flameproof:

A flameproof assessment is typically concluded in between two to six weeks depending on whether environmental conditioning is a requirement. An IA certificate will be issued immediately after completion of the assessment provided that the unit conformed to the requirements of the flameproof standards.
A DIP assessment stresses the integrity of the sealing mechanisms utilised for ingress protection by subjecting the unit to environmental conditioning for a certain period. It is a requirement that Zone 20, 21 and 22 devices have a DIP rating and not just a IP rating.

Intrinsic Safety:

An Intrinsic safety assessment is typically concluded in between four to six weeks depending on the availability of technical documentation. An IA certificate will be issued immediately after completion of the assessment provided that the unit conformed to the requirements of the intrinsic safety standards.
1. A physical sample unit
2. A Circuit diagram with accompanied bill of material
3. Other technical documentation like datasheets of safety components
4. Where there is no sufficient documentation available for a certain safety component, ten sample components must be submitted
5. 10 batteries/cells (Where the device in question is a battery-operated device)
6. Where the unit forms part of a larger system, a system diagram is required.

Finance:

We have more than one company and each company has its own statements with its own invoice range. Each company statement contains only the invoices for that company.
The banking details are displayed on all invoices and statements (top centre of the document)
Our product is documentation. Our technical staff send the documents out per email upon completion of the assessment. Our POD is hence an email with the required documentation attached. It is normally directed to the technical staff who aided with the technical correspondence.

Batch Inspections:

Batch inspections are conducted by an ATL on a batch of apparatus of type tested and certified design, to verify compliance with this recommended practice.
Batch testing is carried out by a test officer accredited for the relevant standard(s). The
testing or assessment is carried out against the original test report and against a checklist approved by the test officer.
