5 Application of stamp markings
5.1 General

5.1.1 Stamp markings consist of manufacturing, operational and certification stamp marks and are

listed in Clause 5, Clause 6, Clause 7 and Clause 8. The layout of the marks is covered by 5.3. Additional

markings may be applied if required by other regulations or technical standards, or when required by the

cylinder owner; provided the layout does not cause any confusion in their interpretation and the clarity

of the other mandatory markings is not affected.
5.1.2 Low stress stamp marking methods shall be utilized.
5.1.3 Stamp markings shall be applied to low stress areas.

5.1.4 Stamp marking shall be in accordance with the requirements of EN 14894 and any requirements

in the standard to which cylinder or drum is being manufactured.

The marking information may be supplemented and/or duplicated by electronic means or other types of

coding where required by the operator.
NOTE 1 The TPED includes additional marking requirements (π-marking).

NOTE 2 The requirements of RID/ADR override any conflicting requirements of this document; this may lead to

a temporary noncompliance with EN 14894.
5.2 Workmanship

5.2.1 All stamp markings shall be affixed clearly, legibly and durably on the cylinder and shall remain

visible and legible under all foreseeable operating and ageing conditions.

— Markings required to be “permanent” shall be such that they can only be removed with the use of

special tools and may be done, for example by hard metal stamping, engraving, casting, embossing,

encapsulation or other similar methods.

— Markings required to be “durable” shall be such that they remain visible and legible for the relevant

period of time and may be done, for example by printing, external labelling, stencilling, use of valve

hand-wheel insert or other similar methods.

cylinder or on a permanently affixed component, e.g. shroud, handle(s), foot ring, welded nameplate, etc.

5.2.3 If markings are applied after completion of manufacture or following periodic inspection, by
