Programme: download the programme outline
Contact: Thierry Legrand
Organized by: CEN Pressure Equipment Advisory Nucleus
Hosted by: CEN



We welcomed over 70 participants

    Experts involved in the design and construction of pressure Equipment;

    • Manufacturers of pressure equipment;
    • Manufacturers in machine and plant industries;
    • Operators of small to large scale plants;
    • Planning companies;
    • Engineering bureaus
    • Technical consulting companies;
    • Testing and monitoring organizations


The aim of the workshop was to raise awareness and visibility about pressure equipment (PE) standards and facilitate the use of the PE construction codes. The CEN Pressure Equipment Advisory Nucleus also aimed to offer a training for experts in applying the essential requirements of the Pressure Equipment Directive (PED–2014/68/EU) and the Simple Pressure Vessels (SPVD–2014/29/EU). The PE business is continuously developing and we will explore the standardization needs for the future.


An intensive one-day workshop including presentations demonstrating achievements and offering a training to experts.
Discussions in parallel sessions looked at emerging technologies (e.g. additive manufacturing) and risk analysis.
