Pressure Equipment Directive (PED): guidelines

In order to ensure a coherent application of the pressure equipment directive Guidelines are currently being established and agreed in the framework of the Commission's working group "Pressure".

They represent, unless indicated differently in the respective guideline text, the unanimous opinion of the member states experts.
