Applus+ has gained a new accreditation to carry out regulatory inspections for Pressure Equipment in Portugal. This important accreditation is the newest addition to its portfolio, as Applus+ strives to maintain its position as a benchmark in an increasingly competitive sector.
This accreditation was awarded by the national accreditation body for Portugal (IPAC), with reference number I0119. It allows Applus+ to carry out different types of inspection on pressure equipment in accordance with Portuguese legislation.
This new service will complement the existing capabilities which Applus+ can offer in the design and manufacture of pressure equipment in Portugal, as a Spanish Notified Body, notified to apply the European pressure equipment Directives 2014/68/EU and 2014/29/EU. This has now expanded to include setting up facilities and carrying out periodic inspections while the equipment is in use.
These accreditations demonstrate the commitment to the pursuit of excellence, goal orientation and future vision of the Applus+ Portugal team, hallmarks which allow us to expand the activities of the company, access new markets and strengthen our position in other industries.
