PESO is an abbreviation of Petroleum and Explosive Safety Organisation of India. The certification of PESO is required to describe the mandatory approval program for the oil and gas industry or products that work with gases or have to withstand very corrosive environments.
This certification was recently called the Chief Controller of Explosives (CCOE) assessment and depended on the Explosives Act of 1884 and the Petroleum Act of 1934 and generally related regulation from there on, specifically the Explosives Rules of 2008 and the Petroleum Rules of 2002 (for a point-by-point list, really take a look at the outline on peso guidelines).
The products like explosion-proof products, pressure vessels, and products for the oil, coal, gas, and the mining industry need a PESO certificate in India. However, LPG manifold systems for various processes are controlled by IS 6044 Part 1 and Cylinder Rule 2016.
Here is a list of a few products which need PESO Certification:
● Gas cylinders/valves/regulators
● Pressure vessels and their fittings
● Gas cylinder filling plants
● Factories for the manufacture of pressure vessels and their fittings, gas cylinder valves, LPG regulators and petroleum tankers and their fittings
Objectives Of PESO?
The primary target of the PESO is to keep a check and oversee the responsibility that is designated under the Explosive Act 1884 and Petroleum Act 1934 and the guidelines made thereunder connected with the manufacturer, transport, ownership, import and commodity and utilization of Explosive, Petroleum items and Compared gases.
The objectives of PESO are as follows:
● They are innovative and develop an alert to make the product in a better way.
● They act as advisors in the areas of safety to the government and semi-government bodies like Railways, Ports, Defense Establishment, and Ministry of Surface Transport.
● They create safety awareness with the motto “Safety First.”
● They provide operational and technical advice and assistance to the Central Government, States, Law Enforcement Agencies, Industry, trade, and end-users of these products.
Is PESO certification mandatory for LPG Manifold System Installation?
In our opinion, all items with IECEx or ATEX certificates also need PESO. However, please be aware that because of the, for the most part, more hazardous nature of the items that fall under PESO, higher perseverance is additionally expected by the organizations that need to have their items insured.
However, for LPG manifold system installation, PESO is not mandatory. It is governed by IS 6044 Part 1 & cylinder Rule 2016. The governance of PESO is not mandatory for the installation of LPG manifold systems.
We will come up with the highlights of the rules of IS 6044 Act in our upcoming blogs for more clarification.
