The main objective of this Handbook is to provide a basis for understanding the principles involved in the identification of a hazardous area, relevant statutory requirements and the selection and installation, maintenance, testing, overhaul and repair of appropriate electricalequipment.

In general a responsible person appointed by the end user should assess the repair or overhaul required and agree and specify in writing all details of the work to be performed after consultation with the Repairer..
