The objective of the IECEx scheme for CoPC (Certification of Personnel Competence) is to use the principles of conformity assessment to provide employers and others with the confidence that the personnel working in or near hazardous areas containing explosive atmospheres have been independently certified as competent.
Each unit of competence describes the competence required for a particular work function. It is envisaged that an individual’s job description will probably require more than one of the specific units of competence outlined below. Unit Ex 001 can stand alone, but all other units require completion of Unit Ex 001 as a minimum.
Service providers for plant design, equipment selection, installation, inspection, maintenance, repair and overhaul are assessed and certified by independent external experts who help bridge the gap and can assist to minimize the risks and consequences of accidents. The IECEx scheme for Certification of Personnel Competence offers an independent evaluation of the knowledge and skills of people who work in hazardous areas; they can be employees of the process companies as well as of external service providers.
