CONFORMITY BASED ON UNIT VERIFICATION

1. Conformity based on unit verification is the conformity assessment procedure whereby the manufacturer fulfils the obligations laid down in points 2, 3 and 5, and ensures and declares on his sole responsibility that the pressure equipment concerned, which has been subject to the provisions of point 4, is in conformity with the requirements of this Directive that apply to it.

2.   Technical documentation

The manufacturer shall establish the technical documentation and make it available to the notified body referred to in point 4.

The documentation shall make it possible to assess the conformity of the pressure equipment with the relevant requirements and shall include an adequate analysis and assessment of the risk(s). The technical documentation shall specify the applicable requirements and cover, as far as relevant for the assessment, the design, manufacture and operation of the pressure equipment.

The technical documentation shall, wherever applicable, contain at least the following elements:

  • a general description of the pressure equipment,
  • conceptual design and manufacturing drawings and diagrams of components, sub-assemblies, circuits, etc.,
  • descriptions and explanations necessary for an understanding of those drawings and diagrams and the operation of the pressure equipment,
  • a list of the harmonised standards the references of which have been published in the Official Journal of the European Union, applied in full or in part, and descriptions of the solutions adopted to meet the essential safety requirements of this Directive where those harmonised standards, have not been applied. In the event of partly applied harmonised standards, the technical documentation shall specify the parts which have been applied,
  • results of design calculations made, examinations carried out, etc.,
  • test reports,
  • appropriate details relating to the approval of the manufacturing and test procedures and of the qualifications or approvals of the personnel concerned in accordance with points 3.1.2 and 3.1.3 of Annex I.

The manufacturer shall keep the technical documentation at the disposal of the relevant national authorities for 10 years after the pressure equipment has been placed on the market.

3.   Manufacturing

The manufacturer shall take all measures necessary so that the manufacturing process and its monitoring ensure conformity of the manufactured pressure equipment with the applicable requirements of this Directive.

4.   Verification

A notified body chosen by the manufacturer shall carry out appropriate examinations and tests, set out in the relevant harmonised standard(s) and/or equivalent tests, to check the conformity of the pressure equipment with the applicable requirements of this Directive, or have them carried out. In the absence of such a harmonised standard the notified body concerned shall decide on the appropriate tests to be carried out applying other technical specifications.

In particular the notified body shall:

  • examine the technical documentation with respect to the design and the manufacturing procedures,
  • assess the materials used where these are not in conformity with the relevant harmonised standards or with a European approval for pressure equipment materials, and check the certificate issued by the material manufacturer in accordance with point 4.3 of Annex I,
  • approve the procedures for the permanent joining of parts or check that they have been previously approved in accordance with point 3.1.2 of Annex I,
  • verify the qualifications or approvals required under points 3.1.2 and 3.1.3 of Annex I,
  • carry out the final inspection referred to in point 3.2.1 of Annex I, perform or have performed the proof test referred to in point 3.2.2 of Annex I, and examine the safety devices, if applicable.

The notified body shall issue a certificate of conformity in respect of the examinations and tests carried out and shall affix its identification number to the approved pressure equipment, or have it affixed under its responsibility. The manufacturer shall keep the certificates of conformity at the disposal of the national authorities for 10 years after the pressure equipment has been placed on the market.

5.   CE marking and EU declaration of conformity

5.1 The manufacturer shall affix the CE marking and, under the responsibility of the notified body referred to in point 4, the latter’s identification number to each item of pressure equipment that satisfies the applicable requirements of this Directive.

5. 2 The manufacturer shall draw up a written EU declaration of conformity and keep it at the disposal of the national authorities for 10 years after the pressure equipment has been placed on the market. The EU declaration of conformity shall identify the pressure equipment for which it has been drawn up.

A copy of the EU declaration of conformity shall be made available to the relevant authorities upon request.

6.   Authorised representative

The manufacturer’s obligations set out in points 2 and 5 may be fulfilled by his authorised representative, on his behalf and under his responsibility, provided that they are specified in the mandate.
