Certification is still Baseefa’s core business and over the last few years they have become the world leader in the issue of IECEx International Certificates, as well as one of the most respected bodies in Europe for the ATEX Directive. Baseefa’s staff have a total of well over 300 years experience in this field, and with our wide representation on the relevant international standards committees, the company is placed to assist our customers with up to date information on standards developments that might affect their products.
Under the generic heading of User Services,  purchasers, installers and users of Ex equipment are helped.  Much of the expertise developed for the European ATEX User Directive can be directly applied almost anywhere in the world. Service can be tailored to meet your needs, concentrating particularly on:


  • Hazardous area gap analysis
  • Fire and explosion risk assessments
  • Hazardous Area Classifications
  • Planning and project management to meet legal requirements (including ATEX)
  • Management systems auditing and plant inspections
Under the IECEx Scheme, Baseefa offers internationally recognised certification for Service Facilities such as electrical motor repair workshops working to IEC 60079-19.  Many of the major oil companies are looking for third party assurance that they can have confidence in the quality of work done in the repair workshops that they use.  Time is always critical in these situations, but a faulty repair is much more likely than faulty original equipment and the results can be catastrophic.
Provision of effective training for all of Baseefa’s core services is supported by a comprehensive range of training modules from our existing portfolio.
Areas covered include:-


  • An Introduction to Hazardous Area
  • ATEX 137 Compliance (1 & 2 Day)
  • Fire and Explosion Risk Assessment and Area Classification
  • Hazardous area training for Designers, Responsible Persons and Operatives
  • General Health and Safety Training
  • Bespoke training solutions
  • Personal competency assessment to IECEx guidelines based on recognizing both training and “on the job” experience
Some of Baseefa’s courses are verified by EAL( UK’s leading awarding body for engineering qualifications) and IoSH (the internationally recognised institution for Health and Safety Professionals)
