Pressure equipment presents inherent hazards due to the potential energy of its content, especially for gases. Consequently most industrialized countries have, for many decades, regulated these products. In European countries, each national authority developed regulations that were significantly different from each other: some were very detailed (e.g., in France), some contained only general requirements (e.g., in the UK), and others included very detailed conformity assessment procedures (e.g., in Germany).
