Hazardous Area Sites which contain any electrical equipment are required to comply with all of the corresponding Australia regulations and standards. It is crucial to have someone who you can trust to design, certify and install your electrical equipment within a hazardous area.

Without complying to these standards, not only do you risk the lives of all of your employees on your site, but your organisation may not be covered by your current insurance.


IECEX Certification.

The IECEX certification system is utilised to facilitate international trade of equipment and services for the use in explosive areas, whilst maintain the level of safety required.

ATEX Certification.

Overseas equipment imported from Europe may be ATEX Certified, which does not meet the Australian standard. If there is no IECEX certified equivalent, you are required by law to have a Conformity Assessment Document in place.

Intrinsically Safe Equipment.

All safety equipment should have a certification number and be correctly installed using special precautions within hazardous areas.

Site Dossier.

As part of maintaining and ensuring the safety of all hazardous areas you are required by law in most jurisdictions in Australia to keep a Certification Dossier. Auto Controls if fully qualified to manage this process for you and assist to show evidence of compliance as well as documenting the maintenance and modifications to all equipment.

Hazardous Areas Classification.

Auto Controls classifies Hazardous Areas based on the frequency and duration of an explosive atmosphere. Equipment which is certified for use in Zones 0,1 and 2 doesn’t qualify it to be used safely in Zones 20, 21 or 22.

Hazardous Areas Installation.

Auto Control’s tailors all electrical installation services within hazardous areas to meet our clients’ needs and to ensure compliance to the Australian standards and regulations.
