exida strives to operate the most useful and relevant personnel, product, system, and process certification programs in the world. We focus on real safety and cybersecurity, not bureaucracy.
Through our extensive and on-going research, exida has developed advanced analysis tools that provide the most accurate results, save the project time and cost, and provide essential customer information.
exida is ANSI accredited to ISO/IEC 17065, the general requirements for bodies operating product certification systems, and ISO/IEC 17025, the international standard for test laboratories.
With strong global acceptance and a growing base of technology, exida has become recognized as the global leader in functional safety certifications. In the overall market, exida has done more than all other major Certification Bodies combined*.
exida is the industry leader in the certification of personnel, products, systems, and processes to the following international standards and guidelines:

"Certification of NOV Texas Oil Tools’ Shear Ram and the assessment of the design process to the IEC 61508 standard raises the bar in safety critical components and gives their clients a clear indication of conformance. We found great benefit in applying functional safety to subsea products. exida has strong expertise in mechanical products and showed us how to apply functional safety."
"Obtaining the SIL 3 capable rating from exida validates our commitment to providing high quality, safe and reliable valve solutions to critical process applications.”
"exida has the experience and reputation to provide a trusted certification which our customers depend upon for their critical applications."
"exida provided an invaluable service to the Profire product development team in regards to training and upgrading existing processes. Interactions with the exida team were meaningful, educational, and productive."
“exida certification is the best choice for global functional safety certification. They trained our experts to perform FMEDA analyses and helped us to migrate to version 2 of 61508. Their understanding of the safety lifecycle has been invaluable.”
"exida uses the FMEDA technique to obtain failure data rather than the cycle test method that is not realistic for process safety applications. The exida certification provides our customers with the data needed for Safety Instrumented System (SIS) design, along with additional confidence in our design processes and products.”
