General Information about ASME Certification

1. Importance of standards

A standard is a means of communication between product manufacturers and their users. Standards are effective because they serve as a common language, defining quality and establishing safety criteria. Costs are lower if procedures are standardized, and training is simplified. (ASME PPC Online

2. Why ASME Codes and Standards are internationally accepted

Conformance to the requirements of international standards serves as means to meet many international regulations. ASME Codes and Standards are based on internationally accepted principles of standardization, i.e. transparency, openness, impartiality and consensus, relevance and effectiveness, as well as coherence.

3. ASME conformity assessment

Manufacturers who participate in ASME conformity assessment programs, can become ASME certified and authorized to stamp the ASME symbol on its products. ASME review teams assess whether a manufacturer's quality control system meets ASME requirements.

4. Adoption of the Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code in the U.S.

During the 19th century boiler explosions in the United States and Europe were common. The introduction of safety codes ushered in a new age of industrial safety that put an end to this toll of death and destruction. The ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code provides clear standards for fabricating components along with supporting documents covering everything from materials (Materials Section II, Parts A through D) to nondestructive tests (Nondestructive Examination Section V) as well as welding and brazing (Welding and Brazing Qualifications Section IX).
