The International Electrotechnical Commission IEC series of explosive atmosphere standards covers a wide array of important considerations when it comes to potentially explosive atmospheres. Dealing with general equipment requirements, gas detectors, intrinsically safe equipment, a variety of different methods of equipment protection, and moving on to the classification of areas, material characteristics, and some industry specific standards, the IEC series is truly expansive. IEC specifies the general requirements for construction, testing and marking of Ex Equipment and Ex Components intended for use in explosive atmospheres. This part of IEC and other standards supplementing this standard specify additional test requirements for Ex Equipment operating outside the standard temperature range, but further additional consideration and additional testing may be required for Ex Equipment operating outside the standard atmospheric pressure range and standard oxygen content. This seventh edition cancels and replaces the sixth edition, published in This edition constitutes a technical revision.

You may need to comply with this standard if you intend to undertake electrical work in areas where flammable gas or vapour risks may arise. Where applicable you must conduct all electrical work in accordance with this standard. This standard concerns the use of electrical apparatus in areas where flammable gas or vapour risks may arise. It sets out requirements for the construction, design, testing, selection and marking of electrical apparatus, as well as their erection, inspection and maintenance.
It also provides guidance on how to classify the explosive risk posed by flammable gas or vapours. Please consult the Contact Officer for more information and to ascertain the level of compliance if any that may be required. A code of practice is a set of rules which details how people in a certain industry should behave. A code of practice can be defined as a result of legislation or by industry regulators and bodies.
