ATEX Compliance Specialists

Atex Inspections Ltd are a leading, international hazardous area inspection company. We have over 50 years experience working with Ex equipment especially in the Oil & Gas sector and our core business is the inspection and compliance of ATEX equipment in potentially explosive atmospheres. Our Co-founder Mr Ray Whitehead first became involved with explosive atmospheres and Ex equipment in the UK coal mines back in the 1960's. Ex equipment was then known as FLP (Flame Leakage Protection) and was the forerunner to the ATEX equipment everyone uses today. He was then involved in the start-up of the very first oil fields in the UK North Sea in the 1970's included the Forties, Brent and Piper so our experience is vast going back many years.

Following best industry practices, our inspections can provide you with the confidence and assurance that you are complying with all the very latest Hazardous Area international standards and meeting your legal obligations with regard to ATEX.

 

We can provide competent, experienced inspectors or a complete inspection Management Package supported by Ex Project managers, Inspection Supervisors, Co-ordinators and Document Controllers.

 

Our inspections will become an integral part of your Ex Integrity and help to maintain the asset in a fit-for-purpose condition while helping to extend the expected remaining lifespan in a reliable, safe and cost effective manner. Our inspections will become an integral part of your safety management structure to identify hazards and risks before they take effect, especially potentially explosive risks, and to make sure they are highlighted, controlled and actioned.  

Through our extensive knowledge, experience and proven track record, we can provide Independent Verification of the integrity and safety of your ATEX equipment and systems. Our highly qualified, experienced teams of inspectors are also qualified electrical technicians capable of carrying out repairs to ATEX equipment and then re-inspecting and signing-off so we can offer a complete package leading to full compliance.
