Ensure your equipment meets TPED requirements.
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.
Only Inspection Bodies in accordance with ADR/RID and Notified Bodies in accordance with TPED can carry out type examination of transportable pressure equipment. 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 can help companies in this certification process for European countries.
