DSEAR Inspections – Hazardous Area Ex Inspections

What is DSEAR?

The DSEAR (Dangerous Substance and Explosive Atmosphere Regulation 2002) is a UK legal regulation. The European ATEX directives are integrated into to the DSEAR regulations and place the same responsibilities on employers
to ensure that work places storing or handling dangerous or flammable substances are made safe for employees to carry out their work.

Our Services

C&P Engineering Services provide DSEAR inspections that provide the necessary documented evidence that verifies that all installed electrical or mechanical equipment is certified, has the correct protection concept, is fit
for purpose and safe to use in the potentially explosive atmosphere area. Our CompEx or IECEx certified trained engineering inspectors have significant experience and industrial tacit knowledge from within the oil, gas, petrochemical, chemical, steel, pharmaceutical power generation and heavy engineering industries.

Our DSEAR inspections area carried out in accordance with the British Standard BS EN 60019-17 or the internationally recognised Standard IEC 60079-17 (The Inspection and Maintenance of Electrical Installations in Hazardous Areas).

Ex Inspections

Ex inspections are critical in order to assure the continuing integrity of the types of protection that enable Ex electrical equipment use in potentially explosive atmospheres and are carried out under the standard IEC / BS EN 60079-17.

The intention of Ex inspections is to ensure that the Ex electrical equipment continues to comply with the original equipment manufacturers’ certification requirements both externally and internally.

We provide highly experienced certified CompEx inspection engineers, electricians and technicians that deliver Ex inspections, maintenance and support services for customers across a wide range of industries, including the chemical, oil, gas, petrochemical, pharmaceutical, steel and heavy engineering industries.

Our CompEx inspection engineers carry out Ex inspections for customers that may only have a small amount of Ex electrical equipment, to customers that have thousands of Ex electrical equipment for inspection.

We work with clients to support and provide them with a path towards full compliance under the mandatory Requirements of IEC / BS EN 60079-17/14, DSEAR (Dangerous Substances in Explosive Atmospheres Regulations), The Equipment Directive ATEX 95 (94/9/EC) and the workers Directive ATEX 137 (99/92/EC).
