Notified Body for Pressure Equipment Directive (PED) certification

In order to get European Union (EU) market access, the EU Pressure Equipment Directive (PED) outlines standards for the design and fabrication of pressure equipment used in the EU market. Partnering with a trusted Notified Body that performs evaluation, certification and quality audits will streamline a cost efficient process that ultimately helps get you to market faster.

PED compliance for European approval of pressure equipment materials

The PED is European legislation covering the design, manufacturing and conformity assessment of pressure equipment and assemblies with a maximum allowable pressure greater than 0.5 bar or 7.25 pounds per square inch. The PED affects most pressure equipment and assembly manufacturers that want to gain market access in the European Economic Area (EEA).

How the Pressure Equipment Directive affects you

If you design or manufacture certain types of pressure equipment for the EEA market, you will need your equipment certified by a Notified Body. It is important to find an accredited and trusted industry partner with extensive global expertise in pressure equipment and assemblies to achieve certification. Additionally, speed to market is critical to compete in today’s modern world. Manufacturers need to innovate safely, mitigate risk and access global markets. You can rely on our expertise to help you cut through the complexity of the process, minimize compliance and regulatory delays, and do it with quicker turnaround time – accelerating your market access.
