Fiditas partnered with Nanyang Explosion Protected Electrical Apparatus Research Institute (CNEx) to support manufacturers of Ex equipment seeking China Compulsory Certification (CCC) approval before their products can be marketed, imported, or used for any commercial purposes in China. Fiditas experts are officially approved by China Certification and Accreditation Association (CCAA) as CCC Ex Inspectors.

Many are not aware of the fact that Institute for explosion safety named S-Komisija was established in 1949 with headquarters in Zagreb, following two tragic explosion disasters in coal mine located in the city of Raša in peninsula Istria at that time. In 2002 former S-Komisija was renamed to Ex-Agencija (Ex-Agency) and existed as EU Notified Body and IECEx ExCB with ExTL until January 2019, when it ceased its certification activities. In the same year Fiditas took over the responsibility for the continuing maintenance of certificates previously issued by Ex-Agencija. Our experienced staff started career in S-Komisija and Ex-Agencija in 1990’s and 2000’s. Today, Fiditas – Explosion Safety Solutions continues with the development in this sensitive field through conformity assessment (third party certification) of Ex products, comprehensive lab testing, hazardous area classification, explosion risk assessment and training.
