Product Certification Under PED – U Stamp – R Stamp

The Pressure Equipment Directive (PED) is a European Legislation aimed at removing the technical barriers to trade relating to the supply of pressure equipment throughout Europe. The PED is based on Essential Safety Requirements (ESRs) that govern design, manufacturing, inspection and testing. PED affects most equipment that will be placed on the market in the European Economic Area (EEA) designed for pressures above 0.5 bar g or 7.25 psi g.

PED covers all types of fixed equipment, including:
1. Pressure Vessels
2. Piping
3. Steam Generators
4. Pressure Accessories
5. Safety Accessories
6. Assemblies comprising two or more items listed above

TPED 99/36/EC (Transportable Pressure Equipment Directive)

The TPED applies to most transportable pressure equipment within the EU. Unlike the PED, the TPED is not a New Approach Directive. Compliance with one of the officially mandated standards is needed.
