PED 97/23/EC directive
Pressure Equipment and Materials Technology


When NPS Laboratory was founded in Germany more than 20 years ago, it all started with steam boilers. Since then the range of tasks performed by NPS Laboratory 's material & plant engineering specialists has widened considerably. 

PED 97/23/EC directive was officially applied as mandatory for all pressure equipment used in the European Union. Since then, NPS Laboratory has helped firms in obtaining certificates and reaching the European market. Companies that are suitable for applying this directive include pressure vessel or boiler manufacturers, steel mills, foundries, forging, piping and fitting manufacturer, industrial valve manufacturer, fastener manufacturer, welding consumable manufacturer, NDE inspection companies, power plants, petro-chemical plants etc.

Other than the pressure equipment directive (PED) 97/23/EC, NPS Laboratory is also qualified to certify simple pressure vessels according to the SPVD 87/404/EEC and (TPED) 99/36/EC directives. Our engineers can issue test reports and the corresponding certificates as required.

Due to many similarities between ISO and PED/SPVD/TPED quality management system, NPS Laboratory is able to combine these audits into a single one as a better service to our clients. With a fully qualified auditor for both ISO and PED, we are able to reduce the time and price to our clients.
