The harmonized standard EN 13445 [1] provides the means by which a manufacturer can claim presumption of conformity to the essential safety requirements of the Pressure Equipment Directive. In addition, it aims to bring together the best available European pressure vessel technology in a single unified document. Use of this standard however, has still to be established in an industry which has been slow to accept change, especially when other well-known codes remain in use. This paper highlights the main technical differences between EN 13445-3 and other international standards (principally PD5500 [2] and ASME VIII [3]) and considers the implications for industry, research organisations and the various code-writing bodies.
