CompEx is fast becoming a mandatory requirement on many offshore plants as it offers complete reassurance to employers managing the safety of these potentially hazardous workplaces. It is a competency validation initiative, based upon the International Electrotechnical Standards Commission (IEC) jointly developed by the Engineering Equipment Materials Users’ Association (EMMUA) and JTL, the leading work-based learning provider to the building services engineering sector.
Established in 1994, the CompEx Certification Body is now accredited ISO/IEC 17024:2012 Conformity assessment standard.
It is globally recognized training and assessment scheme for electrotechnical crafts personnel who work in potentially explosive atmospheres and hazardous area location industries, such as on-and-off-shore oil and gas, pharmaceuticals, energy, chemical industries, etc. CompEx training helps organizations comply with the Electricity at Work Act, 1989, and etc.
The underpinning knowledge and practical assessment in a CompEx course is provided for electrotechnical personnel who undertake the physical installation and assembly of new ‘Ex’ equipment and perform preventative maintenance and inspections on previously installed equipment.
