EEMUA and EUROPIA publish piping PED guide

The European Petroleum Industry Association (Europia) and the Engineering Equipment and Materials Users Association have published a guide to the use of ISO15649 and ANSI/ASME B31.3 for piping in Europe in compliance with the Pressure Equipment Directive (PED). The guide identifies and defines a set of common additional and modified requirements to ISO 15649 and ANSI/ASME B31.3 necessitated by the PED. It includes an actions checklist, and tables identifying key requirements of the PED and the corresponding clauses of the ISO/ANSI–ASME standards, together with supplementary information. The European Pressure Equipment Directive (PED), Directive 97/23/EC, entered into force on 29 November 1999 and will be mandatory throughout the European Economic Area (EEA) from 30 May 2002.
