Intertek’s Plano, Texas Laboratory Gains IECEx Test Laboratory Approval for HazLoc Certification.

Intertek, a leading provider of quality and safety solutions serving a wide range of industries around the world, today announced that its Plano, TX laboratory has gained IECEx Test Laboratory approval for Hazardous Locations equipment certification. This new accreditation enables Intertek’s Plano lab to locally test electrical products that are destined for potentially explosive (Ex) environments to applicable International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standards. The IECEx accreditation expands Intertek's local capabilities and enhances global service and turnaround time for its clients.

Innovations in industrial automation are driving the market for new electrical/electronic equipment, especially in areas such as gas and oil production, chemical processing, industrial manufacturing, and hospital/healthcare environments. Manufacturers are competing to get new products onto market quickly in order to be successful. In gaining this accreditation at its Plano facility, Intertek is able to cut down its testing and certification turnaround time, allowing its clients to reach market faster and be more competitive.

“Hazardous Locations testing and certification is one of the fastest-growing areas of our business,” said Ramzi Amawi, Operations Manager at Intertek’s Plano, TX laboratory. “Our customers are developing new products in areas such as industrial, lighting, meters and detectors, laboratory equipment and medical devices. Having this IECEx accreditation for Plano reinforces the capabilities and expertise we have here, and greatly streamlines the process to get our clients’ projects completed.”

According to the IEC, which governs the IECEx System overall,“testing laboratories are accepted into the IECEx System after satisfactory assessment of their competence. Assessors are selected who will provide confidence to regulatory authorities, users, manufacturers and certification bodies. ISO/IEC Standards and Guides 17025, 65 and IECEx Technical Guidance Documents are used as part of the IECEx assessment process.” (source: IECEx website)

In addition to Plano, TX, Intertek (intertek.com) also maintains IECEx Test Laboratory approval at its Cortland, NY facility as well as in Leatherhead, Surrey, United Kingdom. The Company works with manufacturers around the world to test and certify products for global distribution.
