New Mobile App for Pressure Equipment Manufacturers

Lloyd’s Register launched an all-new mobile application for the Pressure Equipment Directive (EU directive 97/23/EC). The new Pressure Equipment Directive (PED) Category Selection calculator app will provide manufacturers with instant access to customized information about the EU directive. The app also helps facilitate engineering calculations with graphical illustrations to better understand how to obtain CE marking for their products.

With the choice of four languages - English, Dutch, Spanish and Mandarin - the app makes the EC directive information accessible to a global audience. “Navigating the PED process can be confusing for global manufacturers,” said Pascal Coudeville, SVP of Lloyd’s Register’s Inspection business. “Now they have a user-friendly tool that helps sort through technical requirements and points out where they need the aid of a notified body for certification, such as Lloyd’s Register.”

The new app is an extension of Lloyd’s Register’s popular desktop PED category selection calculator that has been downloaded thousands of times since it was introduced in 2004.

The Lloyd’s Register PED app also includes images and illustrations making sure users see more of what they need to know and less of what they don’t.

The app has been produced to support the Lloyd’s Register brand’s technical innovation. It coincides with the company’s recent launch of a new software innovation for operators in the oil and gas sector, where work with leading drilling and operating companies in the Gulf of Mexico led to improving methods of modeling performance and assessing the risks related to the industry’s most safety-critical piece of equipment, the Blowout Preventer (BOP).

Lloyd’s Register plans to add more languages to the PED app over the coming months and is already planning the launch of a series of new apps later this year and in 2014, designed to help companies and their employees operating in the energy sector with guidance and real-time tools.

The Lloyd’s Register PED app is free to download and use, and is available for Apple devices as well as Android smartphones and tablets in the Apple App Store and Google Play. It is for use in the U.S., Asia and across
