Overview of the Pressure System Inspections and Frequently Asked Questions
A pressure system is a system comprising one or more rigid pressure vessels with associated pipe-work and protective devices. In addition to the pressure system inspection, which involves the system being closed down and vessels opened up, a working examination is also usually required. This involves testing the system under pressure and is sometimes more frequent than the thorough 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 inspection.
- Detail the inspection frequency of relevant parts of the system.
The Pressure Systems Safety Regulations 2000 (PSSR) require pressure systems to be inspected in accordance with a Written Scheme of Examination. (PSSR) 2000 applies to most pressure systems used at work. Under PSSR duty holders, users and owners of pressure systems are required to:
- Establish the safe operating limits (pressure and temperature) of their systems
- Ensure that a suitable written scheme of examination is in place before the system is operated
- Ensure that the pressure system inspection is in accordance with the written scheme
- Carry out proper maintenance and provide suitable operating instruction
