IECEx, the IEC System for Certification to Standards Relating to Equipment for Use in Explosive Atmospheres, has a new single logo trademark design.
Approved by the IEC Conformity Assessment Board (CAB), the logo is available on the IECEx website in different sizes and formats, along with a user guide, and should now be implemented, where appropriate, online and in IECEx printed materials.
There will be a two-year transition period, during which the previous dual IEC /IECEx box logo may still be used on new material. During its recent meeting, the IECEx Executive supported the immediate updating of the IECEx logo trademark, appearing on IECEx publications, to the new single logo design.
Additionally, the IECEx Secretariat notes that the IECEx website together with various publications (rules and operating documents) have been updated.
Explosive environments occur where flammable liquids, vapours, gases or combustible dusts could start a fire or explosion. Examples include warehouses, grain storage silos, sugar refineries, gas stations, underground mines, offshore rigs and chemical plants.
IECEx helps to make such environments safe, by providing a means for manufacturers, regulators and users of equipment in hazardous areas to address the risk of fires or explosions from flammable gases or dusts. Testing and certification of equipment, services and competence of persons to international standards facilitates the sale of safer products internationally at a lower cost.
