The technical regulation TR СU 032/2013 On safety of pressure equipment specifies uniform safety requirements for equipment with overpressure 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 designed and manufactured in such a way that specific risks during operation can be excluded.
The compliance with the requirements of the technical regulation TR CU 032/2013 On safety of pressure equipment is a prerequisite for the placing of pressure equipment on the Russian and Eurasian market.
Although the requirements of the TR CU 032/2013 have been harmonized with the requirements of the Pressure Equipment Directive 97/23/EC (PED), they do not correspond to it.
