Essential safety requirements for pressure equipment

PED regulations outline essential requirements for pressure equipment, including design, materials, manufacturing processes, inspection, and testing, providing a legal structure to certification, which allows companies to trade freely across the European Union (EU).

Non-compliance can lead to legal penalties, reputational damage, and loss of customer trust. But more importantly, it can compromise the safety and effectiveness of your offerings.
