About this course

The Pressure Equipment Directive 97/23/EC (PED) of the EU sets out the standards for the design and fabrication of pressure equipment generally over one litre in volume and having a maximum pressure more than 0.5 bar gauge. It also sets the administrative procedures requirements for the "conformity assessment" of pressure equipment, for the free placing on the European market without local legislative barriers. This set out standards and regulations regarding pressure vessel and boiler safety is also very close to the US standards defined by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME).

The present course is aimed at explaining in a practical way the application of the PED to different situations.
