Through this workshop, CEN and CENELEC wish to promote the Pressure Equipment codes of construction in the new EU Member States and outside Europe, e.g. in Eastern European countries and Asia. During the meeting, the participants will have the opportunity to learn about the existing current CEN activities in Technical Committees and will receive further information explaining Technical Reports with application examples of EN 13445 ‘Unfired Pressure Vessels’. New CEN Technical Reports on application examples related to EN 13445 ‘Unfired Pressure Vessels’ will be also presented.
