In today’s rapidly evolving technology and industrial world, safety and reliability are very important when it comes to pressure equipment. From industrial plants/ facilities to everyday household appliances, pressure equipment plays a vital role in a variety of applications. However, the design, manufacturing, and use of such equipment can pose significant risks if maximum care is not taken. Here is where the European Union stepped in and mandated the PED Certificate for pressurized equipment in 2002. This certification ensures compliance with safety regulations and enhances the credibility of your products in the market.
What is the 2014/68/EU Pressure Equipment (PED) Certificate?
The Pressure Equipment Directive (PED), also known as Directive 2014/68/EU is a guideline that sets out the essential health, safety, and environmental requirements to be applied during the design, manufacturing, and market introduction of pressure equipment. It is mandatory for pressure equipment to comply with this directive when being marketed in European Union member countries. The directive aims to ensure the safety and protection of both manufacturers and users. PED covers a range of products, including pressure vessels, boilers, tubes, pipes, valves, fittings, and other components under pressure.
The Importance of PED Certificate
Having the PED certificate is a significant indication of a product’s compliance and safety. This certificate confirms that a product complies with the EU legislation and fulfills the essential health, safety, and environmental requirements. Therefore, it offers a reliable option for consumers and plays a critical role in ensuring the safety of equipment used in industrial facilities/plants.
PED Certificate and CE Mark
If a pressure equipment is compliant with the PED requirements, the manufacturer can add a PED conformity statement bearing the CE mark.
The CE mark is a mandatory conformity marking for many products sold in the European Economic Area (EEA).
This mark indicates that the product complies with the EU legislation and meets the essential health, safety, and environmental requirements. The CE marking on pressure equipment with a PED declaration of conformity attached indicates that the product also meets the PED requirements.
Let’s Take a Closer Look at the 4 Advantages of Having PED Certification
- Increased Safety: The PED certificate emphasizes the application of the highest safety standards during the design, manufacturing, and operation of pressure equipment. By adhering to these standards, manufacturers can significantly reduce the risk of accidents and ensure the safe use of their products.
- Higher Productivity: Robust PED-certified pressure vessels lead to fewer interruptions and downtime due to maintenance, resulting in higher productivity.
- CE Mark: Ensuring PED compliance allows manufacturers to affix the CE mark to their pressure equipment. The CE mark is a symbol of compliance with EU safety, health and environmental protection requirements, showing that the product meets the essential standards for placing on the EU market.
- Environmental Protection: The PED certificate encourages environmentally-conscious approaches in the design and manufacturing of pressure equipment. Manufacturers can attract environmentally-conscious customers and align their businesses with modern environmental standards by reducing environmental impacts and promoting sustainable practices.
