We will be happy to support you in categorising or in carrying out the conformity assessment procedure in accordance with the Pressure Equipment Directive 2014/68/EU for a module or pressure equipment in your company.

Does my product fall under the pressure equipment directive? Do I need contact to an inspection authority? Which documents do I have to provide? Which duties do I have for hedge of my scope of delivery concerning interfaces? Is my scope of delivery already about a CE subject to marking assembly? What do I as the operator of a plant have to consider?

We would like to consult and support you!

If there is a gas or a fluid inside your product which has a higher pressure than 0.5 bar, the pressure equipment directive 2014/68/EU has to be considered. Depending on the risk of the combination of the danger of the fluid, the pressure and volumes/nominal diameter/(DN), pressure equipment (like containers, pipelines etc) are divided in different categories from I to IV. An assembly according to the Pressure Equipment Directive is defined as several items of pressure equipment that have been connected by a manufacturer to form a coherent functional unit. Each category are different modules and conformity procedures allotted which fulfillment can, next to the creation of technical documents as for example risk assessment and instruction manual, also require the engagement of an inspection authority (notified body).

  • Support at the implementation of the conformity procedure according to appendix III of the pressure equipment directive 2014/68/EU

  • Creation of technical documents like risk assessments (risk analysis and evaluation) and instruction manual

  • Support by communicating with the inspection authority (notified body)


Pressure Equipment Directive 2014/68/EU

Practical example

The manufacturer of a pressure vessel has affixed the CE marking and issued an EU declaration of conformity in accordance with Directive 2014/29/EU "Simple pressure vessels". Can the pressure vessel be used without hesitation in a pressure system (assembly) despite the "missing" confirmation of compliance with the Pressure Equipment Directive 2014/68/EU?

Hereof the intended and provided usage of the vessel (mediums, pressure, temperature, etc.) has to be considered. In general a “simple pressure vessel” in an assembly according to the pressure equipment directive 2014/68/EU can be used. However in some circumstances the vessel is not designed for the operational conditions and needs a conformity procedure according to the pressure equipment directive 2014/68/EU.
