ASME Boiler & Pressure Vessel Code (BPVC)

Design, build and maintain safe and reliable boilers and pressure vessels

The 2017 ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code (BPVC) provides rules for safety, design, manufacture and maintenance of boiler and pressure vessels, power producing machines (and associated subsystems), and nuclear power plant components with the objective to provide a margin for deterioration in service. ASME BPVC is adopted (partially or entirely) by all 50 states and numerous municipalities and territories of the United States and all Canadian provinces and is often built into national regulation in other countries around the globe. Boiler and pressure vessel manufacturers, operators, stamp holders and inspectors rely on the ASME BPVC to help:

  • Improve product durability
  • Improve safe operations
  • Minimize risk of system failures
