Update to the Transportable Pressure Equipment Directive and Transport of Dangerous Goods
Companies desiring to export transportable pressure equipments into the European market must comply with the new TPED directive 2010/35/EU. This new directive will replace the current & previous TPED directive 1999/36/EC starting January 1,2011.
TPED directive goes hand in hand with the European Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods (ADR - 2011). The ADR is an agreement between European States and was signed by 55 members as of February 2003. Therefore, the validity goes far beyond the borders of the EU.
The outstanding difference between the TPED and ADR lies in the enforcement. The TPED is enforced through the EU structure while the ADR is enforced through highway checks conducted by individual member States and violations may be individually and locally litigated on the basis of the national laws of any member State where the violation occurred.
The following items will be covered during the webinar:
- Directive 2010/35/EU: Revised Version of TPED
- Conformity assessment and periodic inspection
- Reference to the annexes of the directive 2008/68/EC
- Example: Valves for non-refillable cylinders (EN ISO 13340 in connection with EN 12205 and ISO 11118)
- Reference to the PED, deviations, and approvals
- Format changes with the introduction of Chapters
- Transition arrangements and national adoption
