Have your say: Evaluation of the Pressure Equipment Directive 97/23/EC

The primary objective of the Pressure Equipment Directive is to guarantee free circulation of stationary pressure equipment within the Internal Market whilst ensuring a high degree of safety. It is now over nine years since the Directive entered into force and the European Commission is evaluating its performance. The evaluation is being conducted by the Centre for Strategy & Evaluation Services (CSES). A report on the evaluation will be made available on the DG Enterprise and Industry website later in Autumn 2012.

As part of the Evaluation, CSES is collecting information from businesses and stakeholders about their perceptions of the performance of the Pressure Equipment Directive. The survey should take 10-15 minutes to complete.
There are two surveys, one for businesses involved in the production/ use of pressure equipment and one for stakeholders e.g. notified bodies, government authorities, standardisation experts or bodies, pressure equipment experts or institution and other stakeholders.
