Examen & Certificering

To register for the IEC 62443 exam, you must have fully completed the 3-day training course ‘IEC 62443: Cyber security for Industrial Automation & Control Systems (IACS)’ no more than 1 year prior.

If you pass the exam, you will receive an exam certificate from the NEN demonstrating that you have the knowledge to create and implement an IACS cybersecurity policy in accordance with IEC 62443 and European regulations.

This certificate has a validity period of 2 years. After the expiration of the certificate you need to pass the IEC 62443 exam again within 1 year to keep your certification. If you do not pass the exam within 1 year, you will need to retake the entire 2-day or 3-day training course to retake the exam.

To refresh your knowledge of the IEC 62443 and get yourself ready for the exam, we recommend taking the ‘Refresher Training IEC 62443 Cybersecurity Professional IACS’ training course. This will ensure you have the latest information on the IEC 62443 standard and current legislation.

If you fail on the first attempt, you can make a new attempt every quarter. The condition is that you have not completed the training course more than 1 year before or that you have obtained the ‘IEC 62443 Security Professional Industrial Automation and Control Systems’ certificate less than 3 years ago.

Examinations are conducted by IBEX (part of Kiwa).  In 2022, Kiwa was designated by the IECEE to perform certifications as part of the IEC 62443 series of standards. The certificate is internationally recognised.
