BEPeterson – A Leader in PED Vessel Manufacturing

July 13, 2021


The Pressure Equipment Directive (PED) is a European legislation aimed at removing the technical barriers to trade relating to the supply of pressure equipment throughout Europe. It is based on Essential Safety Requirements (ESRs) that govern design, manufacturing, inspection & testing.

Pressure vessels made for US companies follow ASME while those destined for Europe are governed by PED. The latter is mandatory for the European Union. The requirements for PED are a bit more stringent. There are also different costs associated with the various PED categories & modules depending on volume, pressure & hazardous/non-hazardous gas / fluid.
