Ex Testing and Certification
Late in 2016, TUV Rheinland Australia Pty Ltd (TRA) took the decision to withdraw from Ex testing and certification services in Australia under the ANZEx and IECEx Schemes.
To have lost one of the more successful and independent Test Laboratories and Certifying Bodies from the Australian market would have been bad news for competition and diversity.
The good news is that Ex Testing and Certification Australia Pty Ltd (ExT&C) was formed to take over the operations from TUV Rheinland.
Ex Testing and Certification Australia Pty Ltd has acquired the test equipment and intellectual property of TRA relevant to the Ex testing and certification under the IECEx and ANZEx schemes. ExT&C has also taken over all of the records, IECEx and ANZEx certificates issued by TRA, without any change in the numbering or prefix of the certificates.
ExTC has employed the key personnel presently from TRA. ExT&C operates from the current premises of TRA, using the TRA technical and administrative procedures. The laboratory address, phone numbers and all contact details all remain the same.
