The AD 2000 Code sets out in detail the essential safety specifications required for compliance with the European Pressure Equipment Directive (97/23/EC). This makes it an indispensable tool for the practical implementation of the relevant safety requirements.
The individual documents (Merkblätter) making up the collection cover the following aspects:
AD 2000 rules provide the information essential for the smooth implementation of safety requirements in engineering practice.
Alongside its focus on quality, safety and completeness, it is the clear and unambiguous nature of the specifications - whether for design, assessment, testing or documentation - that make the AD 2000 code so valuable over the pressure vessel engineering spectrum.
Why is the AD 2000 Code important?
The AD 2000 Code complies with the requirements of the European Pressure Vessel Code (PED - 97/23/EC) while incorporating decades of practical experience. Like the DIN EN 13445 series of European Standards, it meets the conformity specifications of the Directive, while at the same time upholding the high standard of quality that is the mark of the AD collection.
