The Pressure Equipment (Safety) (Amendment) Regulations 2024: RPC Opinion (Green-rated)



This opinion covers the impact assessment for The Pressure Equipment (Safety) (Amendment) Regulations 2024, laid before Parliament on 11 April.

The regulations amend the safety requirements for placing UKCA-marked pressure equipment on the Great Britain market to allow the certifying of personnel, and appraisals of materials, to be carried out by relevant bodies based in the European Economic Area (EEA) in addition to those based in the UK.

The impact assessment explains that the EANDCB has not been monetised and the impacts are non-quantified, due to proportionality considerations, a lack of quantified evidence and the existence of commercial sensitivities.
