As a manufacturer of electrical equipment suitable for use in explosive and hazardous areas you must design your products to comply with certain standards. For this purpose IEC 60079-0 or its national derivative has become by far the most applied standard in all major industrial countries. IEC 60079-0 contains the basic requirements for all electrical products that need to be certified for use in zone classified areas and is therefore mandatory.
If you are responsible for or involved in market access, development and the approval process of these electrical products, the update of this standard is of major importance to you. DEKRA is actively involved in the update of this standard by our participation in the standard committees and is up to date on the most current developments.
This webinar gives you insights into the recently released edition of IEC 60079-0 and helps you prepare for the impact these changes will have on your business.
