Getting on the AEMT Ex Register

Criteria to be listed on the AEMT Ex Register:

  1. A responsible person within management
  2. at least two employees that have successfully attended AEMT Training.
  3. ISO 9001 Certified
  4. Repair to BS EN 60079-19 or IEC 60079-19

AEMT Ex Registered Companies are members that have at least two employees that have attended the AEMT courses on the Repair of Hazardous Area Ex Equipment. The technicians have been successfully assessed, and been awarded a certificate by the AEMT.

The certificate requires updating every three years by a refresher course and re-assessment.

The companies also hold an approved quality control system such as ISO 9001:2000 incorporating all aspects of repairs to Hazardous Area Ex motors, and other apparatus, ensuring that they are carried out to BS EN 60079-19, or IEC 60079 - 19 standards. These international standards were derived from an earlier Code of Practice published jointly by the AEMT and BEAMA, in consultation with the Health and Safety Executive. This also ensures that all equipment used for the repairs is properly calibrated, and that the data concerning each repair is correctly recorded.

Each company must have a responsible person appointed within the management of the organisation, with a working knowledge of the concepts and standards applying to the repair of Hazardous Area Apparatus, and responsible for ensuring that the repaired equipment remains safe and conforms to the original standard, and/or certificate.

The companies have staff that has been assessed on their ability to service and/or repair:

  • Certified Hazardous Atmosphere Equipment, such as Motors, Pumps, Fans, Generators, Transformers etc manufactured to the following protection concepts:
  • Flameproof: Ex d, Eex d, Eex de.
  • Increased Safety: Ex e, Eex e.
  • Non Sparking: Ex n, Ex na, Eex na.
  • Dust: tD, and other standards of Hazardous Area Apparatus.

Where possible the apparatus will be repaired to the original certificate, however if the certificate is not available, the apparatus will then be repaired to the original construction standard. This ensures that the requirements of the above international standards are met, and also in Europe the responsibilities under ATEX.
