PED & CE-Mark
Since November 29th 1999, all pressure equipment with an internal pressure greater than 0,5 bar falls under the Pressure Equipment Directive (PED). The Directive is applicable within the European Economic Area (EU plus Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein). Pressure equipment can be traded freely within this area once the PED has been complied with. Compliance with the PED therefore ensures no barriers to trade in this area.
