AD 2000 Merkblatt

AD 2000 Merkblatt

AD 2000 Merkblatt

Can someone tell me the methodology of obtaining manufacturing approval to AD 2000 Merkblatt W0.
The company I represent manufactures raw forgings for the Oil Gas & Energy Secto.

RE: AD 2000 Merkblatt

Notified bodies can approve a manufacturer acc. to AD 2000 Merkblatt W0. The German TUEV is such a nodified body (amongst others). Were (what country) are your manufacturers located? TUEV has officies worldwide although I heard that not all companies (customers) accept approvals from Chinese TUEV branches for example.

" although I heard that not all companies (customers) accept approvals from Chinese TUEV branches"

micalbrch, that's kind of interesting, do you perhaps also now the reasoning behind that? Subpar auditing?

RE: AD 2000 Merkblatt

There are doubts that Chinese TUEV branches act independent but approve companies due to the fact that they are either government controlled or because there are personal relationships. I want to point out that I have no personal experience and cannot confirm that this is correct. But I heard it from customers who do not accept some Chinese TUEV branch approvals.
