PED Software Tools

To help the industry better understand the Pressure Equipment Directive, LRQA offers two software tools for the Pressure Equipment Directive (2014/68/EU).

These tools will allow you to calculate which risk category and conformity assessment modules your equipment falls into.


A desktop version of the PED tool is available for Windows machines.

Latest version: 6.1.3 (July 2018)

Just fill out the form below to gain access. By registering, you will also receive updates by email when we update the desktop tool, as well as updates on codes and standards news and developments from LR.

A separate version also contains a Dutch translation and calculations for the KVI, or Dutch pressure vessel regulations. Click here to download that version.

The LRQA PED Category Selection mobile app provides an easy-to-understand, step-by-step process to determine which modules apply to your equipment. 

It's available in English, Chinese, French, German, Italian and Spanish. Click at one of the links below to download the iOS or Android version directly:
