CE/PED

The Pressure Equipment Directive (97/23/EC) became law throughout the European Union in May of 2002. The directive specifies that pressure equipment and assemblies below specified pressure and volume thresholds must be designed and manufactured according to sound engineering practices, be safe, and carry specified markings, but not the CE (Conformité Européenne) mark. Pressure equipment and assemblies above specified pressure and volume thresholds must meet essential safety requirements, satisfy conformity assessment procedures, be safe, and be marked with the CE logo and other specified markings.
