Atex Inspections Ltd. are a premier international hazardous area inspection company specializing in Ex Compliance.

With over 50 years experience working with Ex equipment, particularly in the Oil & Gas sector, we have established ourselves as leaders in the industry and our core business revolves around the inspection and compliance of Ex equipment within potentially explosive atmospheres.


At Atex Inspections Ltd. we prioritize safety and adherence to the highest industry standards and our team of Ex Compliance Specialists are dedicated to ensuring that your Ex equipment and facilities meet all the necessary regulatory requirements.

We stay up to date with all the very latest international standards and regulations related to hazardous areas to provide you with comprehensive inspections that instill confidence and assurance you are meeting the Ex Compliance requirements.


Our comprehensive inspection services will meticulously evaluate the condition, performance, and compliance of your Ex equipment and systems and identify any potential ignition risks or non-compliance issues. Our goal is to help you mitigate risks, protect your assets and safeguard the well-being of your personnel.


We understand the importance of compliance and the legal obligations that come with operating in potentially explosive atmospheres and our team of Ex experts possess the knowledge and expertise required to navigate complex regulatory frameworks and ensure that your organization meets all necessary Standards and Regulations. We assist you in achieving and maintaining Ex Compliance along with all the health and safety requirements that come with it.


Our commitment to excellence extends beyond inspections and we strive to build long-term partnerships with our clients, offering ongoing support and consultancy services tailored to your specific needs. Whether you require advice on risk management, training programs for your staff, or assistance in implementing best practices, our team is ready to provide you with comprehensive solutions.


Why Choose Us?

Because we can provide competent, experienced and trusted Ex Compliance Inspectors or a complete Inspection Management Package designed to streamline the compliance process. You will be supported by Ex Compliance Managers, Project Managers, Inspection Supervisors, Work Pack Co-ordinators and Document Controllers to produce the required Explosion Protection Document, ATEX Ex register or EEHA Verification Dossier. With their expertise and industry knowledge our professionals will ensure your equipment and facility has fully documented evidence of Ex Compliance needed for Operational Readiness and Start-Up.


Our inspectors are also qualified, experienced electrical technicians which allows them not only to conduct thorough inspections but also to perform any necessary remedial repairs which would allow them to pass the inspection and sign-off the equipment as Compliant.

Our team of dedicated professionals will work closely with you to develop a customized plan that aligns with your project's specific requirements. From managing inspections and documentation to co-ordinating schedules and resources, we take care of the entire process, allowing you to focus on other critical aspects of your project.

We understand the significance of well-documented evidence of Ex compliance and our teams meticulously maintain detailed records and back-ups of all inspections, ensuring that you have comprehensive documentation to demonstrate compliance with regulatory standards for Insurance Companies, Governement Bodies and Health and Safety Executives. This documentation not only serves as proof of adherence but also provides you with the necessary information to address any compliance inquiries or future audits.

quality assurance practices and procedures to guarantee the accuracy and reliability of our

inspection and verification processes. Our commitment to quality ensures that our clients
