European foreword

This document prEN 14912:2021 has been prepared by Technical Committee CEN/TC 286 “LPG

Equipment and Accessories”, the secretariat of which is held by NSAI.
This document is currently submitted to the CEN enquiry.
This document will supersede EN 14912:2015
The main changes in comparison with the previous edition are:

— alignment with the requirement of paragraph 12 of Packing Instruction P200 of ADR;

— introduction of inspection and refurbishment requirements for pressure relief valves.

This document has been prepared under a mandate given to CEN by the European Commission and the

European Free Trade Association.

Users are advised to develop an environmental management policy. For guidance, see the

EN ISO 14000 series ([1], [2] and [3]). Users of this document are expected to consult CEN/TS 16765

while implementing its requirements.

This document has been submitted for reference in the technical annexes of the ADR [5].

NOTE These regulations take precedence over any clause of this document. It is emphasized that the ADR is

regularly revised at intervals of two years, which can lead to temporary non-compliances with the clauses of this

document.

Introduction

This document has been prepared to reflect the current methods for periodically inspecting LPG cylinder

valves, and is based upon the operating experience of millions of cylinder years of service over a period

of more than 50 years.

The primary objective of the periodic inspection of transportable refillable LPG cylinder valves is that, at

the completion of the tests, the cylinder valve can be re-introduced into service for a further period of

time.

The valve inspection is an integral part of the periodic inspection of an LPG cylinder.

Periodic inspections/tests are intended to be carried out by a competent person under the authorization

of an inspection body based on a written scheme of examination.

Protection of the environment is a key political issue in Europe and elsewhere. For CEN/TC 286 this is

covered in CEN/TS 16765 and this Technical Specification should be read in conjunction with this

document. This Technical Specification provides guidance on the environmental aspects to be considered

regarding equipment and accessories produced for the LPG industry and the following is addressed:

a) design;
b) manufacture;
c) packaging;
d) use and operation; and
e) disposal.

This document calls for the use of substances and procedures that can be injurious to health if adequate

precautions are not taken. It refers to technical suitability and does not absolve the user from legal

obligations relating to health and safety at any stage.

It has been assumed in the drafting of this document that the execution of its provisions is entrusted to

appropriately qualified and experienced people.

Where judgements are called for, it has been assumed that they are made by competent persons who

have been trained specifically for the tasks.
