 Press Releases

  • Intertek, a leading Total Quality Assurance provider to industries worldwide, announces that its Cortland, New York, facility has been approved by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) to test and certify non-electrical equipment intended for use in hazardous locations under the IECEx scheme. With this accreditation, the facility is one of the first laboratories in North America to offer certification to both the electrical and non-electrical IECEx schemes, streamlining the testing and certification processes for a variety of equipment that will be used throughout the world.

    “At Intertek we are committed to expanding our capabilities to provide the highest level of service to our customers,” said Sunny Rai, Vice President of Electrical at Intertek. “We look forward to bringing our experience and expertise in testing and certifying electrical equipment for hazardous locations to non-electrical industries to further assist our customers in this market.”

    Until recently, the European Union’s ATEX Directive was the only one to address explosion safety risks associated with non-electrical equipment in hazardous locations and explosive atmospheres, with no international third-party approval route for global supply. The introduction of ISO/IEC 80079-36 and ISO/IEC 80079-37 and their incorporation into the IECEx scheme provided the industry with options for global third-party approval for non-electrical equipment. The U.S. Coast Guard has also issued a regulation stating that, effective April 2, 2018; all electrical and non-electrical equipment used in offshore installations must be certified or listed in accordance with either national regulations or the IECEx scheme.

    Intertek provides global solutions to the hazardous locations industry with a proven track record of success supporting clients. From the widely recognized ETL mark and OSHA NRTL approval for North America, to ATEX notified body status for Europe and IECEx certification for global markets, Intertek’s team of engineers and technicians have the experience and know-how to help with the certification process and provide training and technical service solutions designed with the industry in mind.

  • Functional Safety Certification
    Functional Safety works to ensure the proper performance and well-being of a system, and Intertek’s Functional Safety services support the care and security of your process through each step, resulting in an optimized and secure system<br />and product....

  • Every engineered system has risks: risks to people, risks to the environment, and risks to equipment and facilities. Functional safety is the planned reduction of those risks through automated safety systems. This involves a holistic analysis - evaluating all of a product’s systems as an entire working unit to determine how the product’s hardware and software interact and how the product responds to user inputs and the environment in which it is expected to function.

    Functional safety extends to the use of electronic and other types of systems to mitigate risk for a process, typically accomplished through equipment with sensory, logic, and acting elements.  These systems can include calculations and analysis involving Performance Levels (PLs), Safety Integrity Levels (SILs), Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA), the IEC/EN 62061 and ISO 13849, IEC 61508 and IEC 61511 standards, and more.

    Intertek’s expertise in developing and guiding functional safety systems means we can assist in all stages. From product design to safety chain management to performance and safety assessments and more, we can help you reduce risk and optimize your systems.
