On 27 September 2017, the United States National Committee of the IECEx (USNC/IECEx) is hosting a full day World Symposium at the Capital Hilton Hotel, Washington, D.C. (USA).
During this World Symposium titled, “IECEx, A Capital Idea”, attendees will hear from experts on the differences between, and relative uses of, HazLoc equipment and services in accordance with the IECEx System as compared to HazLoc equipment and services in accordance with U.S. codes, standards and regulations. In addition to individual presentations by experts representing manufacturing, certification, users, inspectors and regulatory authorities, preceded by an overview of the IECEx System, there will also be an extended question & answer segment at the end involving all experts. This format is intended to provide all attendees an opportunity to benefit from this broad assembly of technical knowledge and experiences.
UPDATE: The U.S. National Committee for the IECEx has teamed up with International Association of Electrical Inspectors (IAEI) to offer Continuing Education Certificates (CEUs) to industry professionals attending the 2017 IECEx World Symposium. Since rules for continuing professional development vary across countries (and even across local or organizational levels within the same country), each professional engineer that is attending will need to determine the acceptability of these CEU credits for themselves.
