IEC Intrinsic Safety standard maintenance meetings

Mutech’s Managing Director Colin Cameron attended four days of IEC meetings at PTB, Braunschwieg, Germany, for the maintenance of the two intrinsic safety standards, IEC 60079-11 and IEC 60079-25.

These standards are fairly early on in their review cycle and it will be some years before new versions are published. This provides an opportunity to present ideas for more significant additions and changes. Changes made to these standards usually follow through to national standards all around the world, though there are sometimes national variations.

PTB is Germany’s national institute for metrology and physical safety engineering. It is located in a beautiful, spacious and quiet campus and is therefore a great place to hold lengthy technical meetings. The next meetings are expected to be held at UL in Northbrook, near Chicago, during October.
