Directive 2014/68/EU Pressure Equipment (PED)

The PED Directive 2014/68/UE defines the safety requirements for the design, manufacture and installation of individual equipment and assemblies subjected to a maximum permissible pressure exceeding 0.5 bar. In order to be placed on the EU market, such equipment and assemblies (e.g. boilers, hydraulic valves, pressure vessels, pipes and accessories) must comply with the requirements of the Directive and be CE marked.

Depending on the module chosen, ECM’s engineers and auditors perform the activities included in the assessment procedures described in the Directive, so that the equipment can be placed on the European market and in operation in compliance with the essential safety requirements.
