The Pressure Systems Safety Regulations (PSSR) 2000 require hydraulic systems containing gas- loaded accumulators over a certain age to be tested periodically. It also stipulates that a Written Scheme of Examination must be in place before system operation, and all users and owners of the systems are required to demonstrate that they are familiar with the safe operating limits of their systems and that, under those conditions, the systems are safe.
