Simple Pressure Vessels directive

The new SPV directive (2014/29/EU) has been published and came into force on 20/04/16 to replace directive 87/404/EEC.
1. Simple pressure vessels are intended to contain air or nitrogen at a gauge pressure greater than 0.5 bar but less than or equal to 30 bar, and not intended to be exposed to heat.
2. Simple pressure vessels must be manufactured in series production and be of welded steel or aluminum construction with a total pressure volume (PS.V) product not exceeding 10,000 bar or less.
3. All Category A vessels must meet the essential safety requirements outlined in Annex 1 of the Directive. They must have safety clearance, the CE mark and the other specified information shown on the vessel and be issued with appropriate instructions.
4. All Category B vessels must be manufactured in accordance with engineering practice recognized as sound in an EEA State and bear the specified inscriptions (but not the CE mark).
Latest changes
Directive 87/404/EEC has now been replaced by directive 2014/29/EU. There is a two-year transition period (ending on 20th April 2016), at which point all simple pressure vessels will need to conform to the new directive.
All declarations of conformity will need to be updated with the new reference number 2014/29/EU.
