IECEx Scheme for Certification of Personnel Competence

Take advantage of the OCS partnership with UL Solutions to help manufacturers’ employees gain the personnel competency they need to compete in a more complex global supply chain. It’s critical for your employees working in areas involving explosive atmospheres (Ex) to have the knowledge and competency necessary to properly and safely perform activities – such as design, installation, maintenance, inspection and repair – in accordance with the applicable International Electrotechnical Commission Explosive (IECEx) standards.

Through UL Solutions we offer the following Units of Competence:

  • Basic knowledge and awareness to enter a site that includes a classified hazardous area (Unit Ex 000)
  • Applying the basic principles of protection in explosive atmospheres (Unit Ex 001)
  • Installing explosion-protected equipment and wiring systems (Unit Ex 003)
  • Maintaining equipment in explosive atmospheres (Unit Ex 004)
  • Testing electrical installations in or associated with explosive atmospheres (Unit Ex 006)
  • Performing visual and close inspection of electrical installations in or associated with explosive atmospheres (Unit Ex 007)
  • Performing detailed inspection of electrical installations in or associated with explosive atmospheres (Unit Ex 008)
  • Designing electrical installations in or associated with explosive atmospheres (Unit Ex 009)

We can issue both Ex Facility Orientation Certificates (EFOC) for Unit Ex000 and Certificate of Personnel Competence (CoPC) for Units 001, 003, 004, 006, 007, 008 and 009. Leverage our extensive expertise and real-world experience of our hazardous locations engineers to help gain the essential personnel competency.
