What is a written scheme of examination (WSE)?

Under the Pressure Systems Safety Regulations 2000 (PSSR), all users and owners of pressure systems need to be able to demonstrate that their equipment is safe to use and that they are firmly aware of its safe operating limits.

This is achieved by having a Written Scheme of Examination (WSE) completed by a ‘Competent Person’ with associated thorough examination reports.
