Pressure Equipment Directive 2014/68/EU

Minimize risk and gain a competitive edge

Pressure equipment manufacturers, suppliers and project owners need to be aware of many regulations, standards and building codes. The new Pressure Equipment Directive (PED) was published in the Official Journal of the European Union L 189 on 27 June 2014. The new Directive 2014/68/EU replaces the old PED 97/23/EC.
