On April 29, 2020, new versions of SSG's piping class standards were published. The new editions are adapted to the new EU directive PED 2014/68/EU, implemented in the Swedish Work Environment Authority's regulation AFS 2016:1.
Many of the standards have also been merged, based on dimension, pressure class and welding factor. This is to simplify the use of the standards. Many of the previous standards have also been withdrawn due to the merger. Here you can read more about the changes that have been made.
The Pipe Engineering Committee is responsible for standardisation and research in the field of pipeline systems and pressure vessels.
The SSG Pipe Engineering Committee was launched in 1971. It works with standardisation and researches new services relating to pipeline systems and pressurised devices. The work environment, reliability and maintenance are important criteria involved in this work. The committee regularly detects the needs of industry in respect of pipeline systems and pressurised devices, and it also works with business intelligence, network building and knowledge exchange. The committee is also working to increase awareness and market relevant standards and associated services.
SSG’s pipeline standards meet the requirements of applicable directives and regulations with regard to pressurised devices, which means that clients, suppliers and manufacturers can feel secure in their selection of components. SSG’s pipeline standards have a certificate of compliance which was issued by Kiwa Inspecta (certificate number 20-1013779-100).
During the last quarter of 2020, the committee will start up two new working groups:
