CE Marking - Pressure Equipment Directive 2014/68/EU Up-date

Amending Implementing Decision (EU) 2019/1616 as regards harmonised standards for seamless and welded stainless steel tubes, steel forgings for pressure purposes at high temperature and with high proof strength, unfired pressure vessels and vehicle fuelling appliances for natural gas vehicles


Annex I to Implementing Decision (EU) 2019/1616 lists the references of harmonised standards drafted in support of Directive 2014/68/EU. The references of harmonised standards EN 13445-10:2021, EN 17278:2021, EN 10216-5:2021, EN 10217-7:2021, EN 10222-2:2017+A1:2021, EN 10222-4:2017+A1:2021, EN 13445-1:2021, EN 13445-4:2021, EN 13445-8:2021, EN 13445-2:2021, EN 13445-3:2021, EN 13445-5:2021 and EN 13445-6:2021 should be included in that Annex.


Annex II to Implementing Decision (EU) 2019/1616 lists the references of harmonised standards drafted in support of Directive 2014/68/EU that are withdrawn from the Official Journal of the European Union. The following harmonised standards the references of which are published by communications 2016/C 293/01 and 2017/C 389/01 have been replaced, revised or amended: EN 10216-5:2013, EN 10217-7:2014, EN 10222-2:2017, EN 10222-4:2017, EN 13445-1:2014, EN 13445-1:2014/A1:2014, EN 13445-4:2014, EN 13445-8:2014, EN 13445-8:2014/A1:2014. The references of those standards should therefore be included in Annex II to Implementing Decision (EU) 2019/1616.


It is also necessary to withdraw the references of harmonised standards EN 13445-2:2014, EN 13445-3:2014, EN 13445-5:2014 and EN 13445-6:2014 together with any amendments thereof published by Implementing Decision (EU) 2019/1616, given that they have been replaced. It is therefore appropriate to delete those references from Annex I to that Implementing Decision.


In order to give manufacturers sufficient time to prepare for the application of the new standards, revised standards or amended standards, it is necessary to defer the withdrawal of the references of harmonised standards.


Implementing Decision (EU) 2019/1616 should therefore be amended accordingly.


Compliance with a harmonised standard confers a presumption of conformity with the corresponding essential requirements set out in Union harmonisation legislation from the date of publication of the reference of such standard in the Official Journal of the European Union. This Decision should therefore enter into force on the date of its publication,


ANNEX I

(1) entries 7, 8, 9 and 10 are deleted;


(2) the following entries 7a, 8a, 9a and 10a are inserted in the appropriate place sequentially according to the number of the entry:
