BEL's pressure vessels are approved to carry the CE mark as a proof of the compliance with the European Pressure Equipment Directive 2014/68/EU (replacing Directive P.E.D. 97/23/EC.)
The European Parliament and the Council Directive 97/23/EC on pressure equipment (PED) is based on Article 114 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union and is one of the main product harmonisation Directives based on the “New Approach” principles. The Pressure Equipment Directive (PED) is transposed into national law by the EU Member States.
This directive has been recently aligned to the New Legislative Framework (NLF) to simplify and improve the implementation.
The new Directive 2014/68/EU will fully enter into force on 20 July 2016. As of 1 June 2015, the current provisions related to the classification of fluids in the current PED Article 9 are already replaced by Article 13 of the new Directive.
BEL Quality System was reviewed by a third party independent organization according to the P.E.D demands.
