Minimize risk and gain a competitive edge
The European Pressure Equipment Directive (PED) 2014/68/EU provides mandatory guidance for the design, manufacturing and conformity assessment of pressure equipment with a maximum allowable pressure above 0.5 bar or 7.25 psig. Compliance with this Directive is required for designers and manufacturers looking to sell their equipment to the EU. Pressure equipment that is covered by the PED includes pressure vessels, pressure accessories, piping, steam boilers, safety accessories and assemblies.
Pressure equipment manufacturers, suppliers and project owners need to be aware of many regulations, standards and building codes. Compliance is required to bear the CE marking. The new Directive was published in the Official Journal of the European Union L 189 on 27 June 2014 and replaces the old PED 97/23/EC.
Important aspects of the law with regards to the changes:
