SYMBOL ORIGIN ORGANIZATION/DESCRIPTION
ATEX-EX European Union

ATEX (2014/34/EU)

The ATEX Directives require employers to classify where hazardous explosive atmosphere can occur and equipment used in potentially explosive environments. Mechanical and electrical equipment, as well as protective systems, must comply with the ATEX (ATmospheres EXplosibles) Directive. ATEX certification allows the CE and Ex marks. Approved models and their ATEX safety rating are listed in the EU Declaration of Compliance.

CCC China CCC
The China Compulsory Certificate (CCC) mark issued by the China Certification and Accreditation Administration (CNCA) is a compulsory safety mark for both domestically manufactured products and products imported, sold, or used in the Chinese market.
CE European Union CE
A valid CE mark affixed to a product indicates that it complies with the relevant European Union product safety directives.
CRN Canada CRN
The Canadian Registration Number is issued by each Canadian province or territory. It covers pressure vessels, fittings, or pressure piping. It is a necessary authorization allowing these components to be in operation in Canada.
CSA Canada and United States CSA
CSA certification indicates that a product, process or service has been tested to a Canadian or U.S. standard and it meets the requirements of an applicable Canadian Standards Association (CSA) standard or another recognized document used as a basis for certification. It provides an increased assurance of quality and safety. In the U.S., CSA International is accredited by the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA). (Certificate #2074191)
EMC Compliant European Union EMC (2014/30/EU)
The Electromagnetic Compatibility Directive applies to all electronic or electrical products liable to cause or be disturbed by electromagnetic interference (EMI). Compliance allows a manufacturer to use the CE marking.
Environmental Protection Agency United States Environmental Protection Agency
Kurz meets the certification requirements for: Greenhouse gas (GHG) reporting (CFR Title 40, Part 98.34 (c) and Relative accuracy and zero‐span drift check (CFR Title 40, Part 75)
GOST Russian Federation GOST
Technical standards are maintained by the Euro‐Asian Council for Standardization, Metrology and Certification (EASC). GOST standards are regional, and GOST R standards are national.
HART Communication Protocol Global HART
The Hart Protocol is a global standard for bidirectional (sending and receiving) digital communication between smart devices/field instruments and control or monitoring host system (such as a technician's hand‐held device or laptop, a plant's process control, or asset management, safety or other system using any control platform).
(Certification #L2‐06‐1000‐059)
IECEx International IECEx (60079)
The International Electrotechnical Commission determines the suitability of electrical equipment in flammable or explosive gas atmospheres.

ISA9001

FM Approvals

Global

ISO 9001
The International Standards Organization defines quality system requirements for design/development, production, installation and servicing. It applies to manufacturing and service businesses engaged in all these activities. (Certification #990108.1)

 

FM
Factory Mutual is a certification company offering ISO9000 approval, accreditation, and global conformity in the manufacture and assembly of products. (Certification #990108.1)

KEA Korea KEA
The Korea Electric Association evaluates and ensures electrical safety in accordance with specific Acts and Ordinances of the Electricity Business Act.
LVD European Union LVD(2014/34/EU)
(2006/95/EC) The Low Voltage Directive ensures that electrical equipment within certain voltage limits both provides a high level of protection. It covers electrical equipment with a voltage between 50 and 1000 V for alternating current and between 75 and 1500 V for direct current.
MCERTS European Union MCERTS
(2006/95/EC) MCERTS is the European and U.K. Environment Agency’s Monitoring Certification to ensure the quality requirements for monitoring emissions into the environment. Receiving certification for this EU Directive ensures compliance that the instrumentation is suitable for use in waste incineration and large coal-fired combustion plant applications. The CEM is proven suitable for its measuring task (parameter and composition of the flue gas) by use of the QAL 1 procedure specified in EN14181, for LCPD/IED Chapter III and IED Chapter IV applications.
NAMUR International NAMUR NE43
NAMUR (an international association of process instrumentation user companies) recommends a standardized signal level for transmitter failure. The measurement information range is 3.8 to 20.5 mA, with measurements below and above that range indicating failure information.
PED Certified European Union

PED (97/23/EC)

The Pressure Equipment Directive defines the design, manufacture, testing, and conformity assessment of pressure equipment and assemblies of pressure equipment. A company that meets the directive can use the CE mark.

PROFIBUS Certified International

PROFIBUS

PROFIBUS (Process Field Bus) is a standard for fieldbus communication in automation technology and was first promoted in 1989 by BMBF (German department of education and research) and then used by Siemens. It should not be confused with the PROFINET standard for Industrial Ethernet.

EK Korean Safety Law EK
The Korean EK mark is equivalent to the IEC standards except for the power supply (220V, 60Hz) and the type of plug.

QAL1 Certified

Europe

QAL1
QAL1 applies to ambient air and continuous emission monitoring based on Directive EN 15267, as part of supporting optimal pollution control. (Certificate #0000040211)

 

The approval process for Continuous Emissions Monitoring Systems (CEMS) and Automated Monitoring Systems (AMS) in Germany is administered by TUV and UBA (the Federal Environment Agency). TUV and UBA are recognized internationally due to their extensive certification process and experience. TUV/UBA adopted the European standard EN 15267 Part 3 and incorporated the German domestic requirements (BlmSchV 17: suitable for incineration plant, BlmSchV 13: suitable for large combustion plant, and BlmSchV 27 and 30: suitable for other types of plants) in developing the QAL1 standard.

RoHS Compliant European Union RoHS (2011/65/EC)
The Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive became effective in 2006. It restricts the use of six hazardous materials in the manufacture of various types of electronic and electrical equipment, and sets collection, recycling and recovery targets for electrical goods. It is linked to the WEEE directive.

Europe TUV Rheinland
The Safety Integrity Level (SIL) is a relative level of risk‐reduction provided by a safety function or to specify a target level of risk reduction. The International Electrotechnical Commission's (IEC) standard IEC EN 61508 defines SIL requirements according to hardware safety integrity and systematic safety integrity. A device or system must meet the requirements for both categories to achieve a given SIL.


Sellafield SIL1

The B-Series Mass Flow Meter has been approved for use in SIL1 Safety Instrumented Systems in Nuclear Facilities in the UK.  An assessment was conducted by Sellafield Ltd in conjunction with British Energy and SP Laboratories using EMPHASIS.  EMPHASIS is a tool adopted by the UK Nuclear Industry for assessment of smart instruments for use in nuclear applications.  EMPHASIS is based upon a lifecycle approach as specified in IEC61508, and provides a rigorous evidence gathering tool covering all relevant aspects relating to the company and the product under review.



WEEE European Union WEEE (2002/96/EC)
The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive was introduced in 1970 to improve the environmental performance of businesses that manufacture, supply, use, recycle, and recover electrical and electronic equipment.
