The ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code, abbreviated ASME BPVC, is the largest standard developed by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. It governs the design, manufacture, inspection, and testing of boilers, nuclear components, and other pressure vessels. The BPVC also includes standards for materials, welding, brazing processes and their qualifications, and nondestructive testing. A manufacturer of pressure vessels requires an appropriate ASME Certificate of Authorization for the particular "ASME Code Section" under which a component is to be manufactured. The components must be stamped by the manufacturer with an ASME Certification Mark as proof of conformity.

This seminar describes the process for obtaining ASME Certificates of Authorization for manufacturers of boilers and pressure vessels certified under the ASME BPVC, including how to apply for and prepare for the audit (Joint Review) and what to expect during the audit process.
