We are being asked for a PED certification for a product we produce. Since we are ISO9001 certified I think that I have the requirement tracked down to meeting the requirements of 97/23/CE Modules A and E1. What and where do I find these documents. After an hour of surfing the "net" looking for this information I'm getting a bit frustrated.
PED is EU Pressure Equipment Directive 97/23/EC
there's a link to the standard there and the standard has the tables for conformity assessment. The modules are in Annex III.
You have to look at the tables in Annex II to find your category and then the conformity assessment table to see what modules are required.
My prior company made parts in Category I, Module A and Catgory IV, Modules B&D. And Article 3, Paragraph 3... which is sound engineering practices for parts that are pressure equipment but not requireing a CE mark.
If you tell me what you make I might be able to offer some guidance. I spent 4+ years with the PED. PM me if you don't want to publish it in public.
I'm in the printing business now so I am not a competitor.
