The GAMBICA Flammable Atmospheres Group (FLAG) was made aware of some generic working relationship issues between Certification Bodies and Companies designing equipment that required certification services.

Working with members and certification bodies, GAMBICA is pleased to announce the release of a code of conduct document that addresses key issues with respect to planning and performance expectations on the parties, within a defined workflow.
