Ex Repair Facility Audit
According to Section 177(8) of Decree No. 54/2014 (XII.5.) of the National Fire Protection Regulations:
"Only devices, tools, equipment, power and machinery that have been manufactured, inspected, maintained, and repaired in accordance with the regulations of explosion protection can be placed and used in hazardous areas." Generally, these repairs and restorations can be carried out by workshops specializing in explosion-proof devices and/or the original manufacturer.
One of the most important criteria is that the workshop employs individuals who have participated in relevant explosion protection training, thereby possessing the necessary documented competencies. These professionals must work with equipment that also meets the requirements of explosion safety technology.
Furthermore, according to MSZ EN IEC 60079-19:2020, the workshop must operate based on a documented quality management system, which should include specific instructions for conducting pre-repair and post-repair inspections in accordance with the specific protective mode. These inspections should always be conducted under the supervision of the aforementioned responsible person who has the required documented competencies.
