Plant Safety / Steam and Pressure Technology in Switzerland

Notified Body 0036

Notified Body 0036


As notified body CE0036, the plant safety division of TÜV SÜD Schweiz provides all services in connection with the manufacture and marketing of pressure equipment and assemblies within the scope of the European Pressure Equipment Directive 2014/68/EU and the Swiss Pressure Equipment Regulation SR 930.114. Due to our proximity to the Process Safety department of TÜV SÜD Schweiz Process Safety in Basel, our service focus is on the conformity assessment of parts or of complete production systems (assemblies) in the chemical, pharmaceutical, cold and heat generation, in the energy sector, in the food industry and the process industry in general.

We process assemblies (system parts) that are newly planned and built, but also existing assemblies that are or have been significantly changed, such as an increase in performance (e.g. pressure or temperature), a change in the safety concept or an expansion of the system.

The many years of experience of our specialists in the activities of a notified body for pressure equipment guarantees our customers a reliable, technically flawless and fast implementation throughout the entire conformity assessment process.


TÜV SÜD is your qualified partner for the planning, construction or operation of your steam boiler and pressure equipment systems. Benefit from our experience in all aspects of steam and pressure technology. We offer services and support for plants that serve as storage and transshipment points for chemicals and pesticides, flammable or toxic liquid gases, as well as for plants in the pharmaceutical, chemical and petrochemical industries that are combined in complex process engineering systems.
