IECEx Service Facilities Scheme

What are the IECEx Certified Service Facility Schemes?

IECEx 03 Certified Service Facility sheme assesses and certifies that organizations and workshops that provide Ex equipment selection, design, installation, inspection&maintenance, repair, overhaul and reclamation services to the Ex industry do so respecting the strict requirements of IEC International Standards IEC 60079-14, IEC 60079-17 and IEC 60079-19. This ensures that unique Ex safety features are not compromised during the selection, design, installation, inspection, maintenance, repair, overhaul or reclamation processes.

Please see Informational animation video – ‘Introduction to the IECEx Certified Service Facility Scheme’.

What is involved in assessment by KSC for IECEx 03 Scheme Certification?

KSC as a accepted IECEx Certification Body (ExCB) for IECEx 03-4 Ex inspection and maintenance and IECEx 03-5 Repair, overhaul and reclamation of Ex equipment schemes conducts on-site audits prior to issuing the IECEx Certificate and ongoing periodic audits to ensure that processes continue to comply with requirements. The outcomes of these audits are published as an IECEx Facility Assessment Report (IECEx FAR) along with the IECEx Certified Service Facility Certificate (CoC) that the IECEx FAR supports.

The IECEx Service Facility Certificate of Conformity enables the Ex Equipment User to have confidence that robust systems are in place and monitored, within the Service Facility, to ensure that their Ex equipment will be serviced in conformance with the relevant IEC 60079 series Standards to the certification status as agreed with the Service Facility and that the equipment will be safe to return to service.


KSC welcomes Service facilities who wish to achieve an IECEx certification.
