IECEx 05 - Application for a Certificate of Personnel Competency (CoPC)

After you have obtained an attestation for a certain unit, it is possible to apply for a person certificate (CoPC). With this person certificate, issued under the international IECEx 05 scheme, you are able to prove that you have the knowledge and skills required to safely carry out certain types of work with explosion equipment and installations. With this CoPC you can demonstrate your knowledge and skills to companies worldwide that have accepted this certification scheme.

A CoPC is valid for 5 years and is published online on the IECEx website. Certified persons receive a portfolio card with the scope of their competences.

With an IECEx05 CoPC issued by PBNA, you demonstrate that you are able to:

  • Work safely in hazardous areas;
  • Competent to work;
  • Ensuring that the equipment operates safely and in accordance with security techniques

Advantages of a CoPC:

  • Simple demonstration of competences;
  • The same demonstrable level worldwide;
  • Internationally recognised; required for IECEx certified facilities;
  • Registered in the IECEx database system.

Om het CoPC aan te vragen download het aanvraagformulier of stuur een mail naar [email protected] waarna er contact met je zal worden opgenomen. Voor de definitieve aanvraag dient, naast de betreffende attestation, een Evidence File op te stellen. Deze Evidence File is een document waarin je werkgever je werkervaring vastlegt op het gebied van explosieveiligheid. 

After assessment by the PBNA, you will receive the official IECEx 05 person certificate.
