Achieving product excellence is hard with stringent Hazardous Location standards

Products destined for use in hazardous areas present unique safety challenges for people, processes, and equipment. Combustible dusts, flammable gases, mists or vapors can all contribute to potentially explosive atmospheres in the workplace. As a result manufacturers & suppliers are challenged to ensure their equipment complies with local government, regulatory and international safety standards proving their equipment is safe.

Bringing products to market in different countries can be complicated and non-compliant products risk major redesign or reengineering, possibly resulting in delays and loss of revenue. Avoiding these issues requires careful planning, patience, and an understanding of country–specific certification and approval schemes.
