AEMT Background

The heritage of the association starts all the way back in June 1945 just after the 2nd World War. Ever since then the association has adapted to the world and its markets to maintain its purpose in supporting and promoting their members.

In 1984, AEMT and BEAMA jointly produced the first Code of Practice for “The repair and overhaul of electrical equipment for use in potentially explosive atmospheres”. The usefulness of the document was recognised internationally as the Ex repair standard, IEC BS EN 60079-19 first published in 1993.

Our members operate across many sectors. They manufacture, distribute, install, maintain, service and repair all kinds of systems such as: electric motors, inverter drives, HV machines, pumps, gearboxes, instrucmentation and electronics, mechanical engineering, panel building, transformers and switchgear, and turbines.

The AEMT sits on many committees and standards boards to represent our members in the services they provide on the above equipment. Currently we are working on a draft update on the standard of the International Electro-Technical Commission’s (IEC) titled; Rotating Electrical Machines; the Repair, Overhaul and Reclamation (IEC 60034-23).

Our Ex Training modules concentrate on giving individuals a comprehensive understanding of hazardous area equipment repair standards so that they become competent when working with ATEX equipment.
