Boiler & Pressure Vessel Certification

General Information
Since 1916, ASME has accredited companies in the pressure vessel industry to certify that their products, services and quality system comply with the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code.

The ASME International Boiler and Pressure Vessel (BPV) Code establishes rules governing the design, fabrication, and inspection of boilers and pressure vessels, and nuclear power plant components during construction.

The ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code is in a class of its own. It is internationally renowned. ASME Code Symbol Stamps, which are regarded as the hallmark of acceptance and certification, are used to indicate that the stamped item(s) conform to the latest edition of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Codes.

As well, utilization of the ASME Code Symbol Stamp is a means of complying with the laws and regulations in all 50 states in the U.S., and all of the provinces of Canada. In addition, it has been estimated that over 100 countries accept the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code as a means of meeting their government safety regulations.

The quality systems of more than 4500 companies in more than 65 countries are currently accredited by ASME. Whether or not an ASME Code Symbol Stamp is legally required, it provides users with a high degree of confidence that the stamped items conform to established safety standards.
