[January 23, 2014]

Protecting Asian economies from explosion risks

(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) First IECEx International Conference in Malaysia.

Geneva, Switzerland - In explosive areas, seemingly small failures can have disastrous effects. To meet the world's ever increasing energy demand; the oil and gas industries have built larger and more complex installations for extraction, processing and distribution, and made greater and greater capital investments. To protect these investments and the people working in the installations, compliance with International Standards is paramount.


To help introduce the benefits of IECEx, IEC system for certification to standards relating to equipment for use in explosive atmospheres, to the Asian economy, the Department of Standards Malaysia and MOSTI (Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation) have volunteered to host and help organize the first IECEx International Conference in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The 2014 IECEx International Conference is also organized by the IEC and IECEx in conjunction with the UNECE (United Nations Economic Commission for Europe).

This two day event, taking place on 19 and 20 February 2014, will provide a unique opportunity for industries in the region to better understand IEC International Standards and Conformity Assessment Systems. The Conference will show them how they can benefit from the IECEx services that cover Ex equipment and systems.

The event is for experts, senior staff and professionals from any Ex industry sectors who are involved in the standardization, manufacture, inspection, repair, exploitation, maintenance and overhaul of equipment as well as systems evaluation and certification of personnel competence.

The expert panel of speakers will share their experiences and detailed knowledge on the Ex field, such as plant design, principles and practical applications of area classification. They will answer questions, provide advice and give valuable information to anyone involved in the Ex sector.

"This IECEx event is the first in Asia. It is a powerful tool that can provide professionals in any Ex sectors with the ability to bring safety to the forefront and help their business protect lives and jobs," said Chris Agius, Executive Secretary of IECEx.

IECEx has set out to prove that safety in high risk areas is an attainable goal. The United Nations, via the UNECE, endorsed IECEx as the internationally recognized certification system for promoting the safety of equipment, services and personnel associated with explosive areas.

If you would like to benefit from the experience of the experts who can help your business be safer, please send your details to info(at)iecex(dot)com. For more information on IECEx, please visit http://www.iecex.com.

About IECEx IECEx (IEC System for Certification to Standards relating to Equipment for use in Explosive Atmospheres) provides certification for areas where there is a risk of fire and/or explosions due to flammable gases, liquids and dusts (Ex areas).

Ex areas are a part of almost every industry, from transport, food production, and textiles to petroleum and mining. IECEx covers the broad spectrum of devices, systems and services used in explosive environments and verify their conformity to International Standards. The System addresses inspection (location and other), installation, maintenance and repair of equipment and systems, and assesses the competence of personnel working in this highly specialized area.

IECEx has been endorsed by the UN via the UNECE as THE certification system for the assessment of conformity in Ex areas. http://www.iecex.com About IEC The IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) brings together 165 countries, and over 13 000 experts who cooperate on the global IEC platform to ensure that products work everywhere safely with each other. The IEC is the world's leading organization that prepares and publishes globally relevant International Standards for the whole energy chain, including all electrical, electronic and related technologies, devices and systems. The IEC also supports all forms of conformity assessment and administers three Conformity Assessment Systems that certify that components, equipment and systems used in homes, offices, healthcare facilities, public spaces, transportation, manufacturing, explosive environments and energy generation conform to them.

IEC work covers a vast range of technologies: power generation (including all renewable energy sources), transmission, distribution, Smart Grid & Smart Cities, batteries, home appliances, office and medical equipment, all public and private transportation, semiconductors, fibre optics, nanotechnology, multimedia, information technology, and more.
