About this product

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:

  • Equipment, installation and marking
  • Design
  • Fundamentals
  • Manufacture and testing
  • Special pressure vessels
  • Non-metallic materials
  • Special cases
  • General verification of stability for pressure vessels
  • Metallic materials
  • Guidelines

The benefits:

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.

Who would be interested in the loose-leaf collection?

  • All involved in the manufacture, operation, construction, marketing and maintenance of plant
  • Manufacturers and suppliers of components, piping, boilers, pressure vessels, plant and appliances
  • Design offices, operators of plant subject to inspection

The AD 2000 Code is published by the Verband der TÜV e. V. (German Association of Technical Inspection Agencies (VdTÜV)):

The Code is  drawn up by the German Pressure Vessel Association, members of which include:

  • German Association of Steam Boiler, Pressure Vessel and Piping Manufacturers e.V. (FDBR)
  • German Statutory Occupational Accident Insurance (DGUV)
  • Association of the German Chemical Industry (VCI)
