Process for PESO approval

The PESO certification process comprises the following steps:

  • Tests for type approval (in India or locally by the customer)
  • Document review
  • Issue of the PESO certificate
  • Issue of the license to the Authorized Indian Representative (AIR)

After the license is issued, the product can be imported. The authority usually accepts internationally recognized test reports such as IECEx or ATEX. If you do not have these test reports, the products must be tested in India in any case.

PESO Certificate Validity

A PESO certificate is valid for 2 years and must be renewed after that. PESO licences for static pressure vessels can be applied for for a maximum of 3 years and must then be renewed. Any modification to a machine or pressure vessel must be submitted for inspection.

    As with several of the other Indian certifications, a foreign company that wants to import its products into India needs a local agent in India (an Authorized Indian Representative – AIR) to apply for and maintain PESO approval. Furthermore, you can only submit such an application once you have a confirmed order.

    Ideally, certification can be obtained within a quarter year. However, hardly any project corresponds to the ideal case, because both the novelty of the submitted test reports and the completeness of the documents are points where mistakes can easily occur. It is therefore important to ensure that all documents are clean and up-to-date in order to limit queries from the authorities, which can be very lengthy. Please also note that the authority sometimes has very little time to correct documents, so that in extreme cases the process will have to be restarted.
