Orgalime note to stakeholders in the area of Pressure Equipment and Simple Pressure Vessels Directive

Published: 5 November 2004

Policies & Issues: Internal Market - Product Safety Legislation

The Commission has launched a questionnaire regarding the future of the simple pressure vessel directive (SPVD) and proposes an integration of the SPVD into the PED (Pressure equipment directive).  The Commission proposes three options. Orgalime’s PED task force has analysed this proposal and has come to the conclusion that option 3 (no change of the existing directives) is the only acceptable one. 

Orgalime strongly recommend that associations and other stakeholders should participate in this consultation and adopt a strong position against a merger in order to discourage the Commission in launching yet another 'simplification exercise'. 

The PED Task force has therefore written this position paper to be circulated to Sector Committees and other Stakeholders.
