The Transportable Pressure Equipment Directive 2010/35/EU (TPED) addresses the safety requirements and the conformity assessment procedure for transportable pressure equipment used exclusively for the transport of dangerous goods (Class 2) within the Union. Transportable pressure equipment is required to bear the Pi marking to indicate compliance with the directive.

Companies seeking to export transportable pressure equipment to the European market must comply with the TPED Directive 2010/35/EU. In addition to TPED, companies are also required to comply with the agreements and regulations concerning the international carriage of dangerous goods by road (ADR), by rail (RID) and by inland waterways (ADN).

TÜV SÜD is an authorized inspection and testing body for the European Agreement Concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by road and rail. We help companies in this certification process for European countries.
