Updated every two years, the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code (BPVC) is a globally recognised standard for the construction of pressure vessels, piping and components for nuclear facilities.
Receiving a certificate of authorisation and the certification mark stamp from ASME ensures your equipment is safe and compliant for use. To apply the ASME certification mark to a piece of equipment, a manufacturer must first be audited and authorised by ASME to perform the work.
The latest update to the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code was released in July 2023.
