What is the IECEx System?
The IECEx System is a certification system which verifies compliance with IEC international standards relating to safety in hazardous areas. It covers equipment, service facilities and the competency of personnel.
MASC have successfully completed the IECEx assessment process and are approved to operate within the IECEx Certified Equipment Scheme to issue IECEx Test Reports (ExTRs), IECEx Quality Assessment Reports (QARs) and Online Certificate’s of Conformity: Approved IECEx Certification scope
