An Overview of PESO Certification

The PESO Certification or Petroleum and Explosive Safety Organisation of India describe the compulsory approval program for the gas & oil industry or products that work with gases, are used in the oil industry, or that have to endure a very harsh environment. The PESO Certification was earlier called the CCOE or Chief Controller of Explosives examination and is based on the Explosives Act, 1884 and the Petroleum Act, 1934 and all related legislation thereafter, in particular the Petroleum Rules, 2002 and Explosives Rules, 2008.

Process of PESO Certification

Following is the process of PESO Certification in India:

  1. Prepare Documents: Prepare the application with the required documents, especially ATEX or IECEx certificates & test reports. Test reports must be two years old. ATEX Certificate is granted to the equipment which has been fully tested and approved to be safe to use in a hazardous or explosive environment. IECEx is a certification to standards concerning the equipment for use in a hazardous or explosive atmosphere.
  2. Submit the Application Form: After preparing all the documents, submit the application at PESO authority with the commercial data comprising sales numbers, clients' lists & reviews.
  3. Examination of Application: PESO examiners examine the application and documents.
  4. Factory Audit: Factory Audit is done only for certain products or items like pressure vessels.
  5. PESO Certification: If PESO officials get satisfied with the documents and test, PESO Certificate will be issued.
  6. License to AIR: License is also issued to the AIR (Authorised Indian Representative).

How long will PESO Certification take?

Ideally, Certification can be attained within a quarter year, but hardly any project matches to the ideal case because both the newness of the submitted test reports & the completeness of the documents are points where mistakes can easily occur. Therefore, it's vital to make sure that all the documents are correct and up-to-date in order to limit queries or doubts from the authorities, which can be very prolonged. Please also remember that the authority sometimes has less time to rectify documents, so in that cases, the process or procedure will have to be restarted.

Validity of PESO Certification

A PESO Certification is valid for two years and should be renewed after the expiration. PESO Licences for static pressure vessels can be applied for a maximum of three years and should be renewed. Any modification of changes to a pressure vessel or machine must be submitted for inspection.
