The Technical Regulation TR СU 032/2013 On safety of pressure equipment specifies uniform safety requirements for equipment operated with pressure and their marking. The purpose of this is to ensure the protection of life, health, the environment and property.
According to the Technical Regulation TR CU 032/2013, the pressure equipment and pressure vessels are to be designed and manufactured in such a way that specific risks can be excluded during operation.
The compliance with the requirements of the Technical Regulation TR CU 032/2013 On safety of pressure equipment is a prerequisite for placing pressure equipment on the Russian and Eurasian market.
Although the requirements of TR CU 032/2013 have been coordinated with the requirements of the Pressure Equipment Directive 97/23/EC (PED), they do not directly correspond to it.
