NEC Hazardous Area Inspection

NEC (NEC 500) HAZARDOUS AREA INSPECTION

Although the process for HAZARDOUS AREA INSPECTION of equipment certified to UL/CSA Standards, is not prescriptive (as per IEC 60079 inspection tables) – The equipment as a minimum must;

1. Be suitably certified as per HAZLOC drawing for the Class & Division of use

2. Be Installed as per Manufacturers guidance/best practice

3. Have compliance to 1 & 2 documented

ATEC assures that there is expertise, impartiality, and auditable procedures in line with guidance followed from:

NEC 500

API RP 500

API RP 14

UL/CSA Standards

ATEC staff ensure all inspections are carried out in line with these ANSI requirements – ATEC’s digitized systems provides a means of proving compliance for National Electric Code installations (instead of the extents of the IEC inspection tables that are not wholly appropriate for ANSI equipment).

For example – our detailed reporting outlines all of the tasks required to make the area compliant and safe, plus any remedial actions are identified or can be rectified as part of a very efficient strategy.

    • Conduit Sealing requirements & specific checks
  • Non -Incendive (NI) equipment
    • System requirements & specific checks
  • Guidance on ‘non-marked’ temperature ratings

Our approved ICL™ functionality assures that there is expertise, impartiality, and auditable procedures in line with guidance followed from:

  • NEC 500
  • API RP 500
