Hazardous Locations Guide:
North American and IECEx/ATEX Certification & Markings

The world of hazardous locations can be challenging to navigate as combustible dusts, flammable gases, mists or vapors can all contribute to potentially explosive atmospheres in the workplace. All equipment manufactured for use in explosive atmospheres must be suitably marked and there are many requirements that electrical equipment must comply with, not only before installation, but also while in use in potentially explosive atmospheres.

To provide quick and easy access to this information, our guides to Hazardous Location Certification & Markings gives you simple at-a-glance guidance covering all aspects of North America markings, frequently referenced Standards, industry acronyms, and additional resource sections.
