Frequently Asked Questions
Need consulting services for hazardous locations? Here are some questions you may have:
One of the main challenges is that manufacturers and certification agencies often do not “speak the same language”, because manufacturers are unfamiliar with the requirements of Standards and other rules and Regulations.
At Hazcon Inc, we have deep technical knowledge of the complex, global certification process and its requirements as well as experience interpreting Standards, Codes and Regulations. We can help you achieve certification by helping you design your products in compliance with Standards and help you prepare your samples for the testing. This could save you a lot of time and avoid rejection or delay in the certification process.
Depending on the end-use country or region for your products, you will need different or even multiple certifications. For instance, products to be used in hazardous locations in EU countries need to have an ATEX Certificate. Read our technical articles to learn more.
The more certifications you obtain, the more locations there are in which you may market your product. The pursuit of multiple certifications could make the entire application process more complex. But a manufacturer can save time and money when they combine their certification applications at the same time. Read our technical articles “Benefits of Multiple Certifications for Hazloc Products” to learn more.
Markings achieved as a result of certification are included on the device’s nameplate and are used whenever you market your product. The end-users of your products can check the name-plate and also the certificate issued by the agency to ensure that the product is certified and the certification is still valid.
Simply complete the form on our website to initiate a request. Our team will contact you shortly and suggest a 30 minute introductory call to get details about your product. We will them determine the scope of your project and all the steps needed to get your certification.
Please visit our Hazloc Directory website, subscribe to our newsletter and join our HazLoc community. Our notification system will inform you about Standards updates.
A gap analysis assessment is required to determine the impact of the changes of the new Standard(s) on your product. Additional testing or engineering assessments may be required to demonstrate compliance with the latest edition of the Standard. We can help determine all these requirements before you approach the certifying body.
Because certifying bodies conduct testing and evaluation based on similar Standards, it should not matter which agency you work with - as long as you are well-prepared in advance. Hazcon can work with you and talk with the agency on your behalf to help the process move faster.
