The harmonised standards, the references of which were published yesterday in the Official Journal, provide solutions for compliance and confer a presumption of conformity with the relevant essential health and safety requirements of the simple pressure vessels directive.
A new consolidated list of references of harmonised standards under the simple pressure vessels directive 2009/105/EC was published in the Official Journal C 104 of 11 April 2012.
The use of harmonised standards, which give a presumption of conformity, is voluntary. Thus, the product may be manufactured on the basis of the essential requirements.
