European Market Access for your LNG, BioGas and CNG applications

Do you successfully wish to export your LNG or CNG dispensers to Europe? Or do you want to learn how to deal with legal requirements for BioGas measuring installations? Then it is important to understand the European regulations that apply to these refuelling sources. For LNG and BioGas applications, European directives (MID) are applicable. When it comes to CNG, national legislation is still being applied in several countries. In others, new legislation is under construction.

During this one-day training course you will learn how to navigate through the regulations for refuelling sources and filling dispensers. What exactly does Legal Metrology mean in Europe? And what are the relevant responsibilities for manufacturers, their representatives and/or suppliers? Our experts, who are informed about the latest developments on the energy market, are happy to answer these questions for you.

In addition, you will be given an explanation about the various certification modules for manufacturers and you will learn more about the relevant EN standards, OIML recommendations and WELMEC guides, the latest information on these documents as well as their relationship with the legislation in Europe. You will also learn what to expect from Notified Bodies and supervisory bodies.

After completing this training course, you will be better prepared for the type approval tests and necessary inspections that are involved. You will get a comprehensive overview of the steps you need to take from initial product design to product launch on the European market.
