Proposal for a Directive of the European Parliament and of the Council on the harmonisation of the laws of the Member States relating to making available on the market of pressure equipment.

Published:
4 December, 2013
Policies and Issues:
Pressure Equipment Directive (PED) + Simple Pressure Vessels Directive (SPVD)

The current directive and the Commission’s proposal scope are very similar and refer to pressure equipment and assemblies. At the same time, the term ‘assemblies’ is defined in the Commission’s proposal article 2, 6. Therefore we do not understand why, in many articles (see example of Article 3 and 5 for instance) the term ‘assembly’ has been deleted. This will lead to a situation where assemblies of pressure equipment are not treated like single unit of pressure equipment (which is the case with the current directive) in the EU market.
