PSSR – Pressure Systems Safety Regulations 2000

We are competent to produce written Schemes of Examination alongside any examination request.

The regulations apply to users and owners of systems containing ‘relevant fluids’. Relevant fluids include steam, gases under pressure and fluids that are artificially kept under pressure and become gases upon release into the atmosphere

They require the whole system to be inspected in accordance with its ‘Written Scheme of Examination’.

A ‘Written Scheme of Examination’ is drawn up following a risk assessment of the Pressure System. It must:

  • Clearly define the extent of, and items of plant included in, the pressure system.
  • Detail the inspection frequency of relevant parts of the system.
