The Directorate for Civil Protection and Emergency Planning (DSB), together with the Petroleum Safety Authority Norway (PSA), has adopted new regulations for pressure equipment. The regulations was valid from 11 October 2017..
Do you work with pipe systems and pressurized equipment? Then the Pressure Equipment Directive (PED) applies to your work: The Pressure Equipment Directive / 2014/68 / EU (PED). Who is affected by this directive? The Directive covers the entire process from design and production through to the issuance of a conformity declaration and commissioning. It therefore affects:
- Workshops, manufacturing, installation and assembly;
- Oil/gas operators;
- Contractors and builders;
- Designers and engineers;
- Processing plant owners;
- Importers, suppliers and distributors
By using an analysis tool such as for example Visual Vessel Design we can perform analysis of pressure vessel components and check the results against harmonized standards.
