Pressure System Safety Regulations (PSSR)


The Pressure System Safety Regulations (2000), is the UK regulation for owners and users of pressure systems containing a relevant fluid including steam, gases under pressure and any fluid kept artificially under pressure and which becomes a gas when released to atmosphere. Hydraulic pressure testing is complete to measure wall thickness and identifying whether the pressure vessel can still perform at its required safe operating pressure.
