Whilst Australia does not recognize ATEX as it a trading directive we do recognize IEC standards and as such can usually issue a Conformity Assessment to allow ATEX equipment to be used in Australia, please contact me for assistance with this.
I've been working in Ex workshop since 1996. I started with keeping records of technical documentation. Today I am a specialist for Ex protection. I am responsible person for inspection, overhaul, repair and maintenance explosion-proof electrical equipment. My specialty is Exd electric motors.
Since 2002, after I had started working as electrical engineer in both oil and gas fields, there was a necessity to be familiar with this vital knowledge. Day by day, the matter changed to the need for professionality in dealing with EX equipment's in hazardous atmospheres. I like this field.
