Once a pressure system is installed, the primary duty for compliance rests with the User.
The Pressure Systems Regulations 2000 (PSSR 2000) apply to a system which stores steam at any pressure, therefore coffee machines with a steam boiler, in a work environment, fall under PSSR. This means that they must have a Written Scheme of Examination and that they must also be examined in accordance with the written scheme.
Before a pressure system is operated the User/Owner must ensure that a written scheme of examination has been prepared.
The Written Scheme of Examination is a document that identifies pressure vessels, all protective devices plus other components that, if they were to fail, could give rise to danger, or through failing cause some other parts of the system to fail.
The Written Scheme of Examination must list the specified items for examination and state the nature and frequency of any examinations, which, in the opinion of a Competent Person drawing up or certifying a Written Scheme of Examination, are necessary to ensure safe operation of the system.
