CE certification of pressure equipment


PED CERTIFICATION

Pressure equipment (e.g. pressure vessels, steam generators, pressurised storage containers, industrial piping and safety or pressure accessories) with a maximum permissible pressure in excess of 0.5 bar in order to be placed in the European Union (EU) market needs CE certification.

At the request of manufacturers, the Croatian Register of Shipping the Notified Body no. 2489 (hereinafter referred to as the “Notified Body”), may conduct the conformity assessments in accordance with the requirements of the Pressure Equipment Directive 97/23/EC (PED).

The PED also applies to pressure equipment assemblies such as complex chemical process or power boiler plants and portable extinguishers or bottles for breathing equipment.
The PED has a wide scope, covering the design, manufacture and conformity assessment of pressure equipment and assemblies.

All pressure equipment must meet the essential safety requirements set out in Annex I of the PED. Depending upon the type of equipment, its pressure rating, volume or fluid content, and potential hazards, manufacturers may select a procedure from a range of conformity modules, which include:

  • manufacturers self-certification
  • third-party type examination or design examination
  • third-party inspection
  • quality management system certification

The risk category for the type of pressure equipment is set out in Annex II of the PED. Only lower-risk equipment may be subject to manufacturers self-certification; most pressure equipment must be certified by a notified body.
