KLCS-IECEx Certification Body

KL Certification Services, a division of Karandikar Laboratories Pvt. Ltd., has achieved the prestigious status of being India’s first IECEx Certification Body (ExCB) for the IECEx Certified Equipment Scheme. Since our establishment as India’s inaugural IECEx Testing Laboratory (ExTL) in 2015, under the guidance of Baseefa, UK, we have diligently honed our expertise, culminating in our current standing as an IECEx ExCB. Aligned with our guiding principle, "Working for a safer tomorrow,"

We are dedicated to extending the benefits and convenience of a local IECEx ExCB to both local and international manufacturers, facilitating testing and certification activities in a timely and cost-effective manner. KLCS has also forged partnerships with several ATEX Notified Bodies to assist Indian manufacturers in obtaining ATEX Certification.

Advantages of a Local IECEx ExCB & ExTL

The IECEx Certified Equipment Scheme is designed to streamline international trade in equipment and services for use in explosive atmospheres, while upholding the requisite safety standards. By engaging the services of a local IECEx ExCB and ExTL, clients can benefit from:

  • Reduced testing and certification timelines
  • Enhanced international confidence in the product assessment process
  • Sustained international confidence in equipment and services covered by IECEx Certification
  • Expedited time-to-market for products
  • Consolidated international database listing

Process of Obtaining IECEx Certification

The IECEx System aims to facilitate international trade in equipment and services for use in explosive atmospheres, while upholding the necessary safety standards. Upon a successful application, KLCS will meticulously review the design documentation and request sample configurations for assessment and testing. Subsequently, an audit of the manufacturer’s process will be conducted, and a Quality Assurance Report (QAR) will be issued. The IECEx ExCB Certificate and Scope can be viewed and downloaded for reference. Additionally, ExTRs can be utilized to support certification for any IECEx member body for the issuance of an IECEx Certificate of Conformity (CofC).

We are committed to providing comprehensive testing and certification solutions, and our attainment of the IECEx ExCB status underscores our dedication to ensuring the safety and reliability of equipment used in explosive atmospheres.
