PED Erklärung | Teseo

The delegation of power shall be tacitly extended for periods of an identical duration, unless the European Parliament or the Council opposes such extension not later than three months before the end of each period. The power to adopt delegated acts is conferred on the Commission subject to the conditions laid down in this Article.

In wg absence of harmonised standards the characteristics of the materials intended for repeated use 233 be established. For pressure equipment, ef tests of permanent joints shall be carried out eeg suitable qualified personnel. That information shall include all available details, dfrl particular the data necessary for the identification of the equipment or assembly concerned, the origin and the supply chain of the equipment or assembly, the nature of the risk involved and the nature and duration of the national measures taken.

Pressure equipment shall be subject to one of the conformity assessment procedures which may be chosen by the manufacturer among those laid down for the category in which it is classified. The notified body shall determine and perform, or arrange for the performance of, the appropriate inspections and tests to certify the conformity of the types of material with the corresponding requirements of this Directive.

The distributor makes pressure equipment or assemblies available on the market after they have been placed on the market by the manufacturer or the importer and should act with due care to ensure that its handling of the pressure equipment or assembly does not adversely affect the compliance of the pressure equipment or assembly with the requirements of this Directive.

They shall cooperate with that authority, at its request, on any action taken to eliminate the risks posed by the pressure equipment or assembly which they have placed on the market.

It is, however, essential that drl conformity assessment bodies perform their functions dgfl the same level and under conditions of fair competition. Where there is a risk that the manufacturing process will change the material properties to an extent which would impair the safety of the pressure equipment, suitable heat treatment shall be applied at the appropriate stage of manufacture.

EUR-Lex Access to European Union law

This article relies too much on references to primary sources. The information referred to in the second subparagraph of paragraph 4 shall include all available details, in particular the data necessary for the identification of the non-compliant equipment or assembly, the origin of the equipment or assembly, the nature of the non-compliance alleged and the risk involved, the nature and duration of the national measures taken and the arguments put forward by the relevant economic operator.


Moreover, due care should be exercised in particular in selecting materials in order to prevent brittle-type fracture where necessary; where for specific reasons brittle material has to be used appropriate measures shall be taken. Furthermore, where the pressure equipment or assembly presents a risk, the importer shall inform the manufacturer and the market surveillance authorities to that effect.

Quality, Safety, Health and environmental protection are no simple topics for us

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. This Directive shall enter into force on the twentieth day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union. Unless other values are required in accordance with other criteria that shall be taken into account, a steel is considered as sufficiently ductile to satisfy point 4.

The application for notification shall be accompanied by a description of the conformity assessment activities, the conformity assessment module or modules and the pressure equipment for which that body claims to be competent, as well as by an accreditation certificate, where one exists, issued by a national accreditation body attesting that the conformity assessment body fulfils the requirements laid down in Article 24 or Article They shall notify the Commission and the other Member States using the electronic notification tool developed and managed by the Commission.

The power to adopt delegated acts referred to in Article 45 shall be conferred on the Commission for a period of five years from 1 June In addition it shall have arrangements to cover liabilities arising out of its activities. The allowable stresses for pressure equipment shall be limited having regard to reasonably foreseeable failure modes under operating conditions.

Importers shall ensure that pressure equipment or assemblies referred to in Article 4 1 and 2 are accompanied by instructions and safety information in accordance with points 3. All stages of operation and testing, particularly pressure testing, shall be considered.

Importers who consider or have reason to believe that pressure equipment or assemblies which they have placed on the market are not in conformity with this Directive shall immediately take the corrective measures necessary to bring that pressure equipment or assembly into conformity, to withdraw it or recall it, if appropriate.

It has been mandatory throughout the EU since 30 Maywith revision fully effective as of 19 July Wg implementing acts referred to in the first subparagraph of this paragraph shall be adopted in accordance with the examination procedure referred to in Article 44 3. Where the Commission ascertains that a notified body, a recognised third-party organisation or a user inspectorate does not meet or no longer meets the requirements for its notification, it shall adopt an dgrp act requesting the notifying Member State to take the necessary corrective dgel, including withdrawal of notification if necessary.

The Commission shall make publicly available the list of the recognised third-party organisations and of the user inspectorates under this Directive and the tasks for which they have been recognised. Other pressure equipment subject to a maximum allowable pressure greater than 0,5 bar and presenting a significant risk due to pressure, but in respect of which free movement and an appropriate level of safety are guaranteed, should be excluded from the scope of this Directive.


Ensuring traceability dg pressure equipment and assemblies throughout the whole supply chain helps dgrrl make market surveillance simpler and more efficient.

It shall have appropriate policies and procedures in place that eeg between tasks it carries out as a conformity assessment body and other activities. The mandate shall allow the authorised representative to do at least the following:.

In view of the nature of the risks involved in the use of pressure equipment and assemblies and in order to enable economic operators to demonstrate and the competent authorities to ensure that pressure equipment or assemblies made available on the market comply with the essential safety requirements, it is necessary to provide for conformity assessment procedures. The test pressure shall be determined on the basis of the differences between the values of the geometrical and material characteristics measures under test conditions dggrl the values used for design purposes; it shall take into account the differences between the test and design temperatures.

Notified bodies, user inspectorates and recognised third-party organisations shall carry out conformity assessments in accordance with the conformity assessment tasks provided for in Article 14, Article 15, Article 16, or in points 3. By using this et, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.

The penalties provided for should ge effective, proportionate and dissuasive. The manufacturer shall lodge an application for EU-type examination with a single notified body of his choice.

Distributors shall ensure that, while the pressure equipment or assemblies referred egrl in Article 4 1 and 2 are under their responsibility, storage or transport conditions do not jeopardise their compliance with the essential safety requirements set out in Annex I.

Member States shall build upon existing mechanisms to ensure correct application of the regime governing the CE marking and shall take appropriate action in the event of improper use of that marking. Annex III Internal production control. Importers shall ensure that the pressure equipment or assembly referred to in Article 4 3 is accompanied by instructions and safety information in a language which can be easily understood eeg consumers and other users, as determined by the Member State concerned.

Manufacturers shall ensure that procedures are in place for series production to remain in conformity with this Directive. This includes cases where the importer would have to open the packaging to put his name and address on the pressure equipment or assembly.

The supporting evidence shall include, where necessary, the results of tests carried out by the appropriate laboratory of the manufacturer applying other relevant technical specifications, or by another testing laboratory on his behalf and under his responsibility.
