Supporting the Aerospace Industry with Pressure Systems Safety Compliance

25/09/17


Bureau Veritas has reported a growing trend for PSSR audits within the aerospace industry as more and more organisations seek to achieve and maintain compliance with the Pressure Systems Safety Regulations (PSSR) 2000.

Under the PSSR, owners and users of pressure equipment have a duty to ensure its safe operation, which includes making sure that a written scheme of examination has been completed and that the pressure system is examined accordingly before it is operated.

The regulations apply to any pressurised systems above 0.5 bar, all pressurised steam at any pressure and liquids under certain conditions.

Failure to conform could result in equipment being shut down, and our own experience in the aerospace industry shows a growing trend for PSSR audits from aerospace manufacturers.

Technical know-how and regulatory understanding

Alan Clements, Technical Manager for Bureau Veritas, said: “It is vitally important that aerospace manufacturers understand the importance of PSSR audits. It seems from our own work within the sector that many organisations are beginning to take action, but there are still others who must ensure they are meeting their obligations.

“Conforming to the PSSR is a legal requirement in the UK, and in an increasingly competitive industry, manufacturers simply cannot afford to neglect their duties as owners or operators of pressure equipment. However, preparing written schemes for complex, major pressure systems requires technical know-how and vast industry experience, not to mention a comprehensive understanding of PSSR to maintain compliance.

“That’s why more and more organisations are turning to an independent, third-party compliance partner like Bureau Veritas, with the skills, experience and insight required to support manufacturers in achieving and maintaining compliance".
