TÜV SÜD Korea and SEOEUN PLANT TECH have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for cooperation over Korean certification for pressure equipment. SEOEUN PLANT TECH is an engineering company specializing in the fields of petrochemicals, biotech, food, and Energy.
For successful market access in South Korea, pressure equipment needs to be approved by either the Korea Occupational Safety and Health Agency (KOSHA), Korea Energy Agency (KEA), or Korea Gas Safety Corporation (KGS), depending on the type of pressure equipment. In case of KGS approval, the certification process also comprises a factory audit.
Working with SEOEUN PLANT TECH and drawing on its own comprehensive expertise and extensive global network of experts, TÜV SÜD Korea will be able to offer manufacturers comprehensive support with their pressure equipment certification for the Korean market. Services extend from training and documentation, to inspection, application and technical advisory services for successful factory audits. Through this cooperation, TÜV SÜD Korea will expand its service scope from CE certification to include technical advisory services and training on Korean regulations for overseas manufacturers of pressure equipment.
“TÜV SÜD is a trusted partner of manufacturers aiming to ensure compliance with the relevant requirements in order to achieve global market access. SEOEUN PLANT TECH is an engineering company specializing in Korean standards and maintaining strong relationships with local users. We expect the collaboration of our two companies to boost business in Korea”, says Mr. Jung-Wook Seo, Managing Director of TÜV SÜD Korea.
