The obligations dglr from those essential safety requirements apply only if the corresponding hazard exists for the pressure equipment in question when it is used under conditions which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer.

EUR-Lex Access to European Union law

Where a notified body, a user inspectorate or a recognised third-party organisation subcontracts specific tasks connected with conformity assessment or has recourse to a subsidiary, it shall ensure that the subcontractor or the subsidiary meets the requirements set out in Article 24 or Article 25 and shall inform the notifying authority accordingly.

Member States should take all appropriate measures to ensure that pressure equipment and assemblies may be placed on the market only if, when properly stored and used for their intended purpose, or under conditions of use which can be reasonably foreseen, they do not endanger the health and safety of persons.

Member States shall notify the Commission and the other Member States of the notified bodies and the user inspectorates authorised to carry out conformity assessment tasks in accordance with Article 14, Article 15 or Article 16 and of the third-party organisations they have recognised, for the purposes of the tasks referred to in points 3.

This programme shall define test conditions and criteria for acceptance or refusal.

The term “ensemble” means a distribution system complete with compressor, tank, filters, valves and distribution lines hoses, couplings, fittings, etc Where appropriate, during tests, it shall be possible to observe the critical zones of the pressure equipment with adequate instrumentation capable of registering strains and stresses with sufficient precision.

The impartiality of the user inspectorates, their top level management and of the personnel responsible for carrying out conformity assessment tasks shall be guaranteed. Challenge of the competence of notified bodies, recognised third party organisations and user inspectorates. Member States shall not, on grounds of the risks due to pressure, prohibit, restrict or impede the making available on the market or the putting into service under the conditions specified by the manufacturer of pressure equipment or assemblies which comply with this Directive.


Pressure equipment subject to a pressure of not more than 0,5 bar does not pose a significant risk due to pressure.

Pressure Equipment Directive (EU)

Conformity assessment bodies and their personnel shall carry out the conformity assessment activities with the highest degree of professional integrity and the requisite technical competence in the specific field and shall be free from all pressures and inducements, particularly financial, which might influence their judgement or the results of their conformity assessment activities, especially as regards persons or groups of persons with an interest in the results of those activities.

When making pressure equipment or assemblies available on the market dhrl shall act with due care in relation to the requirements of this Directive. As a consequence, vacuum is designated by a negative value. When a Member State has designated a user inspectorate in accordance with the requirements set out in Article 25, it may not, on grounds of the risks due to pressure, prohibit, restrict or impede the placing on the market or putting into service under the conditions provided for in Article 16, of pressure equipment or assemblies the conformity of which has been assessed by a user inspectorate designated by another Member State in accordance with the requirements set out in Article 977 notification shall include full details of the conformity assessment activities, the conformity assessment module or modules and the pressure equipment concerned and the relevant attestation of competence.

It shall have appropriate policies and procedures in place that distinguish between tasks it carries out as a user inspectorate and other activities. If the manufacturer of an assembly intends to place it on the market and put it into service as an assembly — and not in the form of its constituent non-assembled elements — that assembly should comply with this Directive.

Importers shall indicate their name, registered trade name or registered trade mark and the postal address at which they can be contacted on the pressure equipment or assembly, or, where that is not possible, on its packaging or in a document accompanying the equipment or assembly. Pressure equipment and assemblies should, as a general rule, bear the CE marking.

For pressure equipment, non-destructive tests of permanent joints shall be carried out by suitable qualified personnel. The other risks which this equipment may present may fall within the scope of other Directives dealing with those risks. Final assessment of pressure equipment shall include a test for the pressure containment aspect, which will normally take the form of a hydrostatic pressure test at a pressure at least equal, where appropriate, to the value laid down in point 7.

For that purpose this Directive should ey out criteria for the authorisation of user inspectorates by Member States. For some pressure equipment covered by international agreements for its international transport, national transport and 233 hazards and risks are dealt with by Union Directives based on such agreements. Where corrective measures are not taken or do not have the required effect, the conformity assessment body shall restrict, suspend or withdraw any certificates, as appropriate.


It shall take effect the day following the publication of the decision in the Official Journal of the European Union or at a later date specified therein.

However, by way of exception, safety accessories manufactured for specific equipment may be classified in the same category as the equipment they protect. On the basis of the results of that evaluation, the Commission shall decide by means of implementing acts whether the national measure is justified or not and, where necessary, propose appropriate measures.

In line dgr established practice, the committee set up by this Directive can play a useful role in examining matters concerning the application of this Directive raised either by its chair or by a representative of a Member State in accordance with its rules ef procedure.

Provisions for filling and discharge.

Operational obligations of notified bodies, user inspectorates and recognised third party organisations. Pressure equipment and assemblies shall be accompanied by adequate instructions for use. The obligations arising from the essential safety requirements listed in this Annex for pressure equipment also apply to assemblies where the corresponding hazard exists.

For the same reason, and to ensure equal treatment of economic operators, consistency in the technical application of the conformity assessment procedures needs to be ensured.

The market surveillance authorities shall inform the relevant notified body accordingly. Such rules may include criminal penalties for serious infringements. A conformity assessment body shall be capable of carrying out all the drl assessment tasks assigned to it by Article 14 or Article 15, or points 3.

In such cases, in order to ensure the appropriate level of credibility of evaluations carried out by other national authorities, they should provide the Commission and the other Member States with the necessary documentary evidence demonstrating the compliance of the conformity assessment bodies evaluated with the relevant regulatory requirements.
