First AENOR certificates for UN pressure receptacles in accordance with the United Nations

13/07/2017

First certification institution to grant this recognition in Spain.

• They accredit the safety of transportable pressure equipment and they contribute to promoting exports; receptacles that comply with the UN Safety Marking are accepted for free circulation in the 56 Member States of the UNECE.

• The objective is to minimise the risk of accidents in road and rail haulage. The first certified equipment is composite-material gas bottles, manufactured by Carbotainer.

• AENOR is the control organisation authorised to carry out these conformity assessments.
