AEMT Sandbox - Association of Electrical and Mechanical Trades

Promoting ATEX & IECEx - AEMT

A Brief History

In 1984 the AEMT in conjunction with BEAMA produced the first BEAMA/AEMT "Code of Practice for the Repair and Overhaul of Ex Electrical Apparatus" with input from the major users of Hazardous Area Equipment, and the Health and Safety Executive.

It was subsequently adopted with only minor changes as the British and European Standard BS EN 60079 19, and International standard IEC 60079 19. It is recognised as the standard to which Hazardous Area equipment should be repaired and overhauled.

Since 1984 the AEMT has supported delegates from the repair industry, and personnel from the major Oil companies, Chemical companies, Gas and Water treatment companies etc. from around the world.


The AEMT offers Training in order to comply with the responsibilities of ATEX, DSEAR and the BS EN IEC 60079 19 Standards.

Ex Registered Companies

The Ex Register promotes member companies meeting the requirements of BS EN and IEC 60079 19 for the repair of Hazardous Area equipment. It is widely used internationally by companies with hazardous area equipment seeking high quality repairs, and is promoted widely by the Association.

IECEx BS EN Standards

Members can also benefit from discounted rates on all Hazardous Area standards which are required when repairing.
