#ExAM notes 015 – Annexes of Ex standards

Many people don’t know that the Annexes to the Standards (IEC 60079-14/-17 and -19) regarding personnel competence exist and even when they do know of the existence they don’t understand that these Annexes are normative (refer to http://www.iec.ch/standardsdev/resources/draftingpublications/directives/subdivision/annexes.htm) and NOT informative where:
·         Normative = prescriptive = how to comply
·         Informative = descriptive = help with conceptual understanding

Keep up good work!
Citation from IEC 60079-14:2013 4.5:
“Competency can be demonstrated in accordance with a training and assessment framework relevant to national regulations or standards or user requirements.”
ExAM makes it happen – new trend in the world of Ex personnel competency methodologies.
