Pressure Equipment

Pressure Equipment Directive 2014/68/EU

TÜV UK Ltd can offer all PED Modules for all types of pressure equipment through our sister companies.

Mandatory, but not always easy to apply, the EU directives only specify basic safety requirements (Annex I). TÜV UK supports the Manufacturers position in the market by assisting with implementation of EU directives and with the application of appropriate Standards and Regulations.

The Pressure Equipment Directive covers the design, manufacture and testing of pressure equipment with a maximum allowable pressure of more than 0.5 bar above atmospheric pressure by the application of conformity assessment modules. The Directive includes pressure vessels, boilers, piping, pressure accessories (e.g. valves), safety accessories (e.g. safety valves) and the assembly of pressure equipment components. Pressure equipment is used in many applications such as manufacturing, small and medium-sized enterprises, as well as in large-scale industry including refineries, chemical and power plants.

Presumption of conformity: use of "Harmonised" standards.

The Directive only lays down basic safety requirements. Satisfying these requirements is best achieved by the application of appropriate recognised technical standards. Presumption of conformity, with the Directive, is assumed when harmonised standards are used such as EN13445 (unfired pressure vessels). Other technical standards (e.g. PD5500) can also be applied providing the basic safety requirements of the Directive are met. TÜV UK can advise on selection of the most appropriate technical standard. TÜV UK supports you in implementing the Directive. 

PESR AND SPVSR

TÜV UK Ltd can offer all PESR Modules for all types of pressure equipment.

The Pressure Equipment (Safety) Regulations covers the design, manufacture and testing of pressure equipment with a maximum allowable pressure of more than 0.5 bar above atmospheric pressure by the application of conformity assessment modules. The Regulations includes pressure vessels, boilers, piping, pressure accessories (e.g. valves), safety accessories (e.g. safety valves) and the assembly of pressure equipment components. Pressure equipment is used in many applications such as manufacturing, small and medium-sized enterprises, as well as in large-scale industry including refineries, chemical and power plants.

Presumption of conformity: use of "Designated" standards.

The Regulations only lays down basic safety requirements. Satisfying these requirements is best achieved by the application of appropriate recognised technical standards. Presumption of conformity, with the Regulations, is assumed when designated standards are used such as BS EN 13445 (unfired pressure vessels). Other technical standards (e.g. PD5500) can also be applied providing the basic safety requirements of the Regulations are met. TÜV UK can advise on selection of the most appropriate technical standard. TÜV UK supports you in implementing the Regulations.
