SGS Baseefa have been providing Ex testing and certification for over 90 years, and are a world renowned issuer of ATEX certificates.

  • Implemented systems to help meet the tightest of customer deadlines
  • Facilitated certification for regions such as China, Brazil and Korea

In November 2016 SGS Baseefa appointed their new Operations Manager Phil Oates. Phil has an extensive background in the explosive atmospheres industry. He explains ‘Since 1975 I have worked in the Explosive Atmospheres industry, primarily within manufacturing. As the vast majority of our customers are manufacturers I feel I can relate to the issues that they have, especially regarding the interaction with test and certification bodies such as SGS Baseefa.’

Since Phil’s appointment, SGS Baseefa have carried out some internal re-organisation in order to provide a more customer focussed approach. This has resulted in faster turnaround times for quotes and testing/certification activities, whilst retaining focus on quality and integrity.

Kerry Norcross also joined the team last year as SGS Baseefa Business Development Manager. She concludes ‘My role is to understand manufacturer’s certification needs and to ensure we deliver all of their certification goals, on time and on budget. We take a solutions driven approach and the team and I are available before, during, and after any project to be of assistance in any way that we can’.
If you are interested in discussing your current certification arrangements or any requirements that you may have, either now or in the future, please contact Kerry Norcross or Phil Oates and they will be happy to assist.
