PED & ISO
PED (Pressure Equipment Directive)
In 1997, the European Union began to formalize the requirements for pressure-bearing equipment entering into and being used in the EU. The result of these requirements was the Pressure Equipment Directive (PED). This directive was fully implemented in 2002. The result is that any pressure-bearing equipment, such as pumps and valves, must be produced in accordance with the directive and ultimately carry the CE marking.
PPCP produces thousands of castings annually that end up in the EU. To comply with the PED, we have built a Quality Assurance System that meets or exceeds all of the requirements of the directive. PPCP is certified PED through Hartford Steam Boiler International and is audited regularly to ensure strict compliance. View a copy of our certification.

ISO 9001:2015 establishes the criteria for a quality-management system. The standard covers a wide range of principles, including the focus on customers, process documentation and continuous improvement. ISO 9001:2015 is designed to ensure that customers receive consistent, high-quality products and services.
PPCP has partnered with Systems Certification Body to be certified compliant with the ISO 9001:2015 standard. Our commitment to maintaining our quality-management system ensures that we are producing investment castings of the utmost quality for our customers.
