CE mark for pressure equipment

Pressure equipment

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Access to the European pressure equipment market

pressure equipment traded within the European Union and the European Economic Area must comply with the basic safety requirements of Directive 2014/68/EU (PED).​​

The PED applies to manufacturers of pressure equipment, or their authorised representatives, who are responsible for ensuring compliance with the Directive's requirements.

The CE Mark and the EU Declaration of Conformity ensure that products can be freely traded within the European Market. 

In order to market category II, III and IV pressure equipment, an authorised body such as AENOR must assess whether or not the design and/or manufacture of the pressure equipment at issue complies with the Modules set forth in the PED.

AENOR is notified by the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism and accredited by the National Accreditation Entity (ENAC) for this certification, in accordance with modules A2, B, C2, D, D1, E, E1, H and H1.

For the manufacturer

  • ECE mark allows unrestricted access to the European market, removing trade barriers and allowing for the free movement of products
  • The CE Markis also recognised in other global markets

For the the consumer

  • CE Marks are a guarantee of protection for consumers as they eradicate or reduce the risks associated with the pressure exerted by the equipment sold

Conformity assessment procedures (Modules) are explained in the PED and applied based on the type of pressure equipment at issue.

Modules can mean either the design or manufacturing phase of the pressure equipment, or both. Authorities must assess one or both phases, depending on the type of pressure equipment at issue. 

Audits performed to monitor the manufacturing process for Modules based on quality assurance systems are easily incorporated into ISO 9001 audits. Companies that have an AENOR certified quality management system can benefit from combining PED and ISO 9001 audits as follows: savings in areas such as planning, resources, etc.​​​
