These standards, together with the PED, form the European Pressure Vessel Code. Harmonized standards are presented in the Official Journal www.newapproach.org (see under 'Directive 97/23/EC' or 'Standards').
The 'European Pressure Vessel Code' regulates the finished pressure equipment like pressure vessels, heat-exchangers, piping systems and different types boilers made by customer.
The above standards are supported by harmonized material standards.
