Main purpose of this document is to provide basis for the further discussions leading to the possible extension of the common EU practices and legislation on the area of in-service inspection of pressure equipment. Current version of the document is an informal collection of information on practices in most EU/European countries. Towards this objective, it has been decided to collate the information on inspection practices followed in various countries. In addition to the public sources, surveys were also launched to collect this information. For the sake of possible comparison, the document contains basic information on some non European countries like US, Canada, Malaysia etc. More non-EU date (e.g. for Japan) should be available for the next revision of the document.
