Pressure equipment life cycle
Regulations and standards
Take account of the statutory requirements and use harmonised standards.
Remember to assess the risks and eliminate hazards already at the design stage!
Follow the relevant requirements and affix the CE marking to the pressure equipment if required. In the course of the manufacturing stage, you may also need expert advice of a notified body on conformity assessment.
If the working values of your pressure equipment exceeds certain limits, you must register the equipment into the Tukes pressure equipment register and appoint a competent operation supervisor.
Maintenance and servicing
Follow the manufacturer's instructions and ensure that all periodic inspections of the registered pressure equipment are carried out.
Render the pressure equipment inoperable and dispose it in accordance with the relevant recycling instructions. If the pressure equipment was registered, notify Tukes of the decommissioning!
