New Pressure System Regulations in Ireland

by | May 2, 2013 | Health & Safety

The failure of pressure equipment can result in fatalities and serious injuries and cause major damage to property. The purpose of the Regulations in Ireland, is to provide a robust regime for the management of pressure systems, including clear requirements for periodic statutory examinations of pressure vessels.
The Pressure Systems Regulations (SI 445/2012), that came into force on January 1st 2013, have been incorporated into the General Application Regulations 2007, as Part 10. They distinctly apply to pressure equipment in use, so employers, owners and facilities managers will need to identify their equipment, that now falls under the remit of these regulations.
Whilst checking compliance with these new amendments it’s important to take the opportunity to also check full compliance on the main body of the Regulations that haven’t changed, such as the markings/ labels on pressure systems and the level of information required on an inspection report.
