Vancouver, BC - Canada Brio Technology is happy to announce that their Beijing, China factory has received ISO/IEC80079-34 certification.

In order to keep up with the rapid growth of our existing and esteemed customer GuardRFID Solutions, whose products require "Intrinsically Safe" markings, Brio Technology applied for the ISO/IEC 80079 certificate in December 2014. After going through a series of stringent audit qualification processes by an authorized ATEX notified body, Brio passed the audit and obtained this certification in June 2015.

"We are very excited to have obtained this "intrinsic safety" certification that allows BRIO to be added to the list of CMs on who are certified for producing Intrinsic Safety Products.", said Igor Pakhomov, Canada Brio's Product Manager. "Having obtained this certificate enables Brio to broaden its manufacturing scope, and creates inherent value for Brio to obtain future business with other customers that require IEC products. Brio can start searching for new customers who work with Flammable gases, Vapours and Mists, as well as combustible dusts that create potentially explosive atmospheres".
