The American Society Of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) provides over 600 specific codes and standards for mechanical devices. The ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code (BPVC) is the largest standard and provides the necessary rules for the design, fabrication and inspection of boilers and pressure vessels in the industry and is reviewed every 3 years.
Spirotech Group manufacture in accordance with Section VIII of the ASME BPVC Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code which focuses on Pressure Vessels. It applies to the materials and fabrication methods such as welding, forging, and brazing and covers specialised areas including design, fabrication, inspection, and testing methods.

CE Marking is a mandatory European marking for certain products who conform to the European Directives requirements and can be sold throughout the European Union without needing to be adapted or rechecked. CE Marking of conformity in the European Union is recognised in other countries such as Japan, USA, Canada, Israel, New Zealand and Australia.
BS EN 1090
Since July 2014, structural steelwork and aluminium fall under the Construction Products Regulation (CPR), which means aluminium or structural steel CE marking must be secured to show compliance with EN 1090-1 (the harmonised European standard that applies to structural metalwork).
BS EN 1090 for structural steel is a requirement for products to be sold in Europe, and any organizations who design and/or manufacture steel components must adhere to this standard. Whether in the form of steel frames or metal roofing, any structural engineers, component manufacturers, and anyone with a hand in the steel or aluminium based components that go into metal buildings/building work, should be aware of this.

The PD 5500:2012 Specification covers the requirements for the design, manufacture, testing, inspection and verification of compliance for unfired fusion welded pressure vessels manufactured from carbon, ferritic alloy and austenitic steels, aluminium, copper and nickel used in a wide range of process and energy industry applications.
The term ‘pressure vessel’ as used in this specification includes branches up to the point of connection to the connecting piping by bolting, screwing or welding, and supports, brackets or other attachments directly welded to the pressure containing shell. The term ‘unfired’ excludes vessels that are subject to direct generated heat or flame impingement from a fired process. It does not exclude vessels subject to electrical heating or heated process streams.
The Pressure Equipment Directive (PED) was designed with the intention to allow member states of the European Union to share the same laws pertaining to the design, manufacture, testing and conformity of pressure equipment and the assembly of pressure equipment. It covers the technical coverage for machinery, electrical equipment, medical devices, simple pressure vessels, gas appliances, etc.
Items such as vessels, pressurised storage containers, heat exchangers, steam generators, boilers, industrial piping, safety devices and pressure accessories are all directly affected by the Pressure Equipment Directive and that specified pressure and/or volume thresholds must be safe, cover the design, manufacture and testing, satisfy assessment procedures and carry the CE Marking and other information properly.
