SigmaTron's Elk Grove Village Facility Passes ATEX/IECEx Audit, Will Receive QAN and QAR Certification


Reading time ( words)

SigmaTron International’s Elk Grove Village Facility (EGV) has passed the ATEX/IECEX Audit conducted in September. This certification process is associated with product used in potentially explosive environments. They are customer-specific and in this case related to a gateway industrial internet of things (IIOT) device used in oil fields to provide communications among multiple systems and the cloud.

ATEX is a European Union (EU)-driven standard and IECEX ISO/IEC 80079:2018 is a global standard. Eurofins certifies manufacturers’ quality systems in compliance with the requirements of the ATEX Directive and the IECEx Scheme. This is known as a Quality Assurance Notification (QAN) under ATEX and a Quality Assurance Report (QAR) under the IECEx Scheme.

In addition to enhancing the facility’s ISO 9001 quality management system (QMS) to address this class of product within each procedure, the facility was required to designate an EX product expert and a backup expert, who both go through specialized training. Employees working on the products will also go through product- specific training as part of production launch.
