The new PED 2014/68/EU

The new internationalized version of the Pressure Equipment Directive PED 2014/68/EU came into effect on the 27th of June, 2014. On the 19th of July, 2016 the granted transition period will expire.

For you as our customer the new Directive introduces only little changes to existing requirements. The former certificates stay valid. Additionally, there were small adjustments to the specific scopes and conformity assessment.
