BS EN 14025:2018

Tanks for the transport of dangerous goods. Metallic pressure tanks. Design and construction

Status : Current   Published : August 2018



This document specifies the minimum requirements for the design and construction of metallic pressure tanks having a maximum working pressure exceeding 50 kPa (0,5 bar), for the transport of dangerous goods by road and rail and sea. This document includes requirements for openings, closures and structural equipment; it does not cover requirements of service equipment. For tanks for the transport of cryogenic liquids, EN 13530 1 and EN 13530 2 apply. Design and construction of pressure tanks according to the Scope of this document are primarily subject to the requirements of RID/ADR, Subsections, and 6.8.5, as relevant. In addition, the relevant requirements of RID/ADR, Table A, columns 12 and 13, to Chapters 3.2, 4.3 and Subsection apply. For the structural equipment RID/ADR, Subsections and apply, as relevant. The definitions of RID/ADR, Subsection 1.2.1, are referred to. For portable tanks see also RID/ADR, Chapter 4.2 and Sections 6.7.2 and 6.7.2. In addition, the relevant requirements of RID/ADR, Table A, Columns 10 and 11 to Chapters 3.2, 4.2, and Sections 6.7.2 and 6.7.3 apply. The paragraph numbers above relate to the 2017 issue of RID/ADR which are subject to regular revisions. This can lead to temporary non-compliances with EN 14025. This document is applicable to liquefied gases including LPG; however for a dedicated LPG standard see EN 12493. If not otherwise specified, provisions which take up the whole width of the page apply to all kind of tanks. Provisions contained in a single column apply only to: tanks according to RID/ADR Chapter 6.8 (left-hand column); portable tanks according to RID/ADR Chapter 6.7 (right-hand column).
