Current status in standardization in the field of PED Bratislava-11, 12 and 13 April 2005 Nouredine Hakimi CEN Programme Manager Content Some important horizontal decisions taken at CEN level The Pressure Equipment Advisory Nucleus The work programme and status of draft standards The promotion of Pressure Equipment standards Conclusion Sources of Information CEN IS MADE UP OF: a system to carry out formal processes shared between: 28 National Members, and the representative expertise
they assemble from each country 8 Associates; 2 Counsellors (EC, EFTA) The CEN Management Centre, Brussels Some important horizontal decisions taken at CEN level Mr Lars Flink, the new chairman of the CEN Board, outlined the challenges facing CEN in the next three years: 3-year timeframe for the development of standards: the successful implementation of this action; Enlargement of CEN: participation of all CEN Member bodies in the technical work. Technical work in the enlarged CEN (Resolution BT 10/2004) BT created a group (BT/CAG 172 Technical work in enlarged CEN) to advise the Chairman on ways to facilitate the participation of the National Standards Bodies in the technical work, at all levels.
Global relevance of standards (Resolution BT 17/2004) BT noted that BT/WG 152 Global relevance in standards is developing guidance to CEN technical committees on the implications of global relevance.

Ratification + 2 months Definitive text available = 21.5 to 23.5 months Unique acceptance procedure UAP The Pressure Equipment Advisory Nucleus: PE-AN The pressure Equipment Advisory Nucleus is a group reporting to the CEN Technical board. There are 16 members (NSBs, EC, Notified Bodies, Users, Manufacturers, CMC,..) The PE-AN is a forum for the management of sector activities The PE-AN has plenary meetings 2 to 3 times a year. Last meeting: 5th of April
PE-AN The PE-AN issues recommendations that are handled by the CEN Programme manager. This could lead for example to: BT decisions Messages to CEN/TCs The PE-AN could be addressed to answer to specific concerns related to the sector Specific principles in the pressure sector The pressure equipment standards are classified into two categories Type 1 standards (Cited in the Official Journal) Type 2 standards (not cited ) Classification of Standards: Type 1 standards
Provide a technical solution to [fully] achieve one or more specific PED Essential Safety Requirements either by itself or by calling up other references (see guideline 10.5). It can be a product standard (i.e. a standard dealing with items of pressure equipment or assemblies) or a standard dealing with materials, procedures for permanent joining, approval of NDT personnel etc. Classification of Standards: Type 2 standards Provide useful elements that contribute to the fulfilment of ESR(s) cannot alone give presumption of conformity to these ESRs. Examples: NDT test methods, general principles, terminology. Type 2 standards are likely to be used as normative references in type 1 standards

Ratified Amendment, revision, maintenance Standards are continuously amended or revised to stay at the state of the arts or include new topics Maintenance : There are 3 Help desks covering major standards EN 13445:2002 Unfired Pressure Vessels EN 13480 Metallic Industrial piping EN 12952 and EN 12953 for boilers Because of the complexity of the standards for : - correction of potential errors and mistakes; - answering queries raised by users. EN 13445 Unfired Pressure Vessel Help Desk
A central point to collect questions & feedback from the users of the standard A network to answer the queries in a very short time An official body to give authorised answers, accepted by the authors of the standard A professional body to prepare corrected pages of the standard A place to find updated information about the standard, its status, its future. EN 13445 Unfired Pressure Vessel Help Desk The CEN Management Centre makes the corrected pages available to the CEN National Standard Bodies. The delivery of these corrected pages to the final users is under the responsibility of CEN National Standard Bodies. EN 13445 MHD: Functioning

In total there will be approximately 8 corrections that will
be incorporated in the 2nd issue of EN 13480 that will be published probably in coming months. EN 12952 and EN 12953 Boiler Help Desks Experts have already been nominated Chairman and Secretary of CEN/TC 269 Convenors of CENT/TC 269/WG 1, WG 2 and WG 3 CEN/TC 269 will provide the following internet address for the help desk: http://www.nard.din.de/index.php? lang=en&na_id=nard The activity of the Boiler help desk has encountered some delays but will start soon EN 12952 and EN 12953 Boiler Help Desks The MG shall deal with editorial problems. Any Technical problems, or lack of agreement, shall be passed to the
appropriate WG for resolution. The Promotion of Pressure Equipment Standards CMC does not sell standards but encourages their use The promotion of standards is to the benefit of all, especially the NSBs Ways of promoting are: Writing case studies on the success of manufactures using ENs Being present at important conferences (speakers, booths) Publishing articles on important standards Organising workshops/conferences Developing help desks Promotion of standards outside Europe: Visibility Fund
The European Commission Services Visibility Fund for co-financing projects aimed at the promotion of standards outside Europe has been used in 2004 for four projects : Presentation of the Design Criteria of EN 13445 During the 57th Annual Assembly of the International Institute of Welding (IIW),Osaka (Japan) 11-16 July 2004; This includes 16 presentations from European experts; Presentation of the European position on sealing technology, creep damage and repairs at the Pressure Vessel Research Council Meetings of April 5-8, 2004 in Savannah, Georgia, USA.; by Guy Baylac; Presentation of the results of the Comparative Study on Pressure Equipment Standards at the ASME PVP Conference 2004, July 25 29, San Diego, CA, USA, by Prof. Josef Zeman TUW (Vienna, Austria); Lectures at the Pressure Vessel Association of China, and the East China University of Science & Technology in September 2004, by John Darlaston
Visibility: 2005 projects ASME PVP Conference in DENVER (July 2005): Guy Baylac as co-ordinator Five papers will be presented: Non destructive testing of unfired pressure vessels European acceptance criteria for radiographic testing Inspection and testing of serially produced pressure vessels Non destructive testing of welds Non destructive testing and inspection of unfired pressure vessels subject to cyclic loads in EN 13445-5 Workshops in Korea in association with industry, Korea Power Engineering and the University of Seoul (Sept, Oct 2005) John Darlaston
Conclusions The CEN work programme supporting the PED has well progressed Some gaps should be filled: Harmonized standards for Cast Iron are still an omission Develop copper and aluminium material standards for pressure purposes CEN looks forward for the Completion of mandated programme Major product standards are available and need to be used more by industry CEN looks to further improve competitiveness of ENs And to promote EN standards Useful websites www.cenorm.be CEN Home page http://ped.eurodyn.com Text of Directive, Guidelines and links to standards, notified bodies, JRC, etc www.eotc.be/newapproach Blue Guide
