ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code 2007

Since 1914, ASME (The American Society of Mechanical Engineers) has been setting the standards necessary to ensure the safety of individuals working with or around boilers and pressure vessels. The ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Codes are internationally recognized codes for the latest rules and regulations for safety of design, fabrication, maintenance, and inspection of all types of vessels.

The entire collection of ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Codes (BPVC) updates every three years with addenda published each year. The 2007 edition contains thousands of pages of updated code, standards, examples, and figures.

The ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code is available in a variety of packages including hardcopy individual purchasing and Internet subscriptions. Internet subscriptions can be configured for one or unlimited users depending on the needs of your organization. This is especially crucial for large organizations where incremental savings on additional licenses save money over purchasing several individual hardcopies.

IHS, the worldwide leader for engineering, technical, and regulatory information, has been working with ASME since 1989 to publish the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code in easily accessible CD-ROM and Internet formats, and the hardcopy version of the Code.
In addition to the Code updates, IHS provides all the critical ASME content related to the Code either as part of your subscription or as individual document purchases. The referenced standards available from IHS include more than 78 standards that are actually referenced within the Code and an additional 200+ ASME standards that we have identified as beneficial to users of the Code.
