Meeting Air Compressor Regulations

Using an air compressor is an efficient and valuable way to generate power, but it does come with its own set of strict regulations. If you are operating air compressors, even infrequently, you have to understand these regulations in full, and be prepared to abide by them. It’s up to you to ensure you understand all regulations, translate them effectively into your business, and comply with them in full at all times.

One of the main things you need to bear in mind is the pressure regulations. Your air compressor will need to comply with the pressure regulations set out in the UK, and you will need to prove this during regular inspections. Your machinery will need to be inspected and tested by competent people outside of your organisation, who will verify whether they meet all necessary regulations. You then need to keep all paperwork, to make sure your air compressors have a complete service history.
