New Version - Guidelines related to the Pressure Equipment Directive 2014/68/EU


Since 19 July 2016 the new European Pressure Equipment Directive 2014/68/EU (PED) replaces the Directive 97/23/EC.

In order to ensure a coherent application of the Pressure Equipment Directive 2014/68/EU (PED), Guidelines are developed and agreed by the Commission's Working Group "Pressure" (WGP). This working group is composed of representatives of Member States, European federations, the Notified Bodies Forum and CEN (European Committee for Standardization) and chaired by a representative of the Commission services.



Most of the PED Guidelines developed for Directive 97/23/EC are issued as a PED Guideline under the new Directive 2014/68/EU. Also new Guidelines may be issued to support the implementation of the Directive.
