    Hi everyone

    I am currently conducting a comprehensive review to establish similarities and differences between the two main sets of standards for classifying areas where flammable gases or vapors can arise. The American method of classes and divisions of NEC and API 500 and 505, and the European zoning method proposed by IEC 60079-1 and EI 15. Thank you for all your help and support, if you have any writings, references, books or articles that can help me with this purpose are very welcome.
