On Saturday May 4, the European Commission published an updated list of the European harmonized standards that pertain to the Simple Pressure Vessels Directive (2009/105/EC). The standards on this list may be used by manufacturers of simple pressure vessels to prove that their equipment complies with the essential requirements of this directive.
Simple pressure vessels that comply with all relevant standards on this latest list are deemed to comply with the essential requirements of Directive 2009/105/EC. When standards have been updated by this list, the equipment needs to be re-evaluated against the updated standard and the Declaration of Conformity must be updated.
The only standard on the list that changed (added) is:
- EN ISO 15614-1:2004/A2:2012
The updated list of standards that pertain to the Simple Pressure Equipment Directive 2009/105/EC can be found in our Library shortly.
