ASME Authorized Inspection Services

ASME in Brief:

The ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers) Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code (BPVC) is a globally recognized standard for construction of Boilers, Pressure equipment, piping and components for Process Plants, Power Plants and for nuclear applications. ASME Certification Mark with applicable Designators is a mandatory requirement for Boilers and Pressure Vessels to put into use in US and CANADA. ASME BPVC is also used for construction of Boilers and Pressure Vessels worldwide (India, Middle East, Far East, Africa, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, etc.) due to its world-wide acceptance and effectiveness in ensuring safety of pressure relating items. Obtaining the ASME Certification will help manufacturers of Boilers and Pressure Vessels to expand their business to most parts of the world with increased re-assurance to users about safety.
