This is an assessment-only pathway to recognition of an applicant’s ability to conduct a conformity assessment and produce a Conformity Assessment Document.

On enrolment, participants will be provided with a Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) Kit, which provides guidance through the process of gathering evidence in support of the assessment application. The RPL Kit provides detailed information about the process and evidence that should be submitted.

As part of demonstrating competency, applicants must provide at least two Conformity Assessment Documents (CAD), along with the following supporting information:

  1. Overall photo(s) of the equipment concerned
  2. Legible photo(s) of nameplate(s) of the equipment concerned. Alternatively, certified nameplate drawing(s) – but only such as are listed in the certificate(s) if any
  3. Full copy(copies) of relevant evidence of equipment certification(s) that are traceable from the nameplate(s)

The Conformity Assessments must include equipment for all the following explosion-protection techniques:

  1. Flameproof (Ex d)
  2. Increased Safety (Ex e)
  3. Intrinsic Safety (Ex i)
  4. Non-Sparking (Ex n)
  5. Pressurisation (Ex p)
  6. Dust protection by enclosure (Ex tD)
