This Part of this European Standard specifies the inspection and testing of individual and serially produced pressure vessels made of steels in accordance with EN 13445-2 predominantly subject to non cyclic operation (i.e. vessels operating below 500 full equivalent pressure cycles).
Special provisions for cyclic operation are given in EN 13445-3 and in Annex G of this Part.
This Part does not give inspection and testing provisions for vessels designed using Design by Analysis - Direct Route (DBA) of Annex B of EN 13445-3:2002.
NOTE The responsibilities of parties involved in the conformity assessment procedures are given in Directive 97/23/EC. Guidance on this can be found in CR 13445-7.
