CONFORMITY ASSESSMENT

ASME’s product certification programs qualify a manufacturer’s or assembler’s quality control system in accordance with ASME Codes and Standards. They are the clearest way to tell all relevant parties that your company is committed to public safety and product quality.


ASME PRODUCT CERTIFICATIONS:

• Indicate the highest level of conformity available;

• Provides confidence to others that your products, parts, and process conforms to code requirements for safety and reliability.

• Give your business a competitive edge –providing access to global markets and facilitating global commerce.

Achieving product certification by ASME is a means of complying with the laws and regulations in most all U.S. States, nine Canadian provinces, and innumerable jurisdictions elsewhere. Today, more than 7,300 companies in over 79 countries are certified by ASME. Even in countries where the ASME Certification Mark is not legally required, it remains invaluable for assuring that stamped items conform to established safety standards.


BOILER AND PRESSURE VESSEL CERTIFICATION

The ASME BPV Certification Program conforms to the rules governing the design, fabrication, assembly, and inspection of boiler and pressure vessel components during construction. Products manufactured by ASME BPV Certificate Holders are certified and stamped with the Certification Mark(a.k.a., Code Symbol Stamp) in accordance with the applicable ASME BPVC Section.

NUCLEAR COMPONENT CERTIFICATION

Nuclear-type Certificates of Authorization issued by ASME verify the adequacy of an organization’s quality assurance program and allow the Certificate Holder to design, fabricate, and install components and supports used in nuclear power plants and other nuclear facilities. These components will be certified and stamped with the Certification Mark in accordance with Section III of the ASME BPVC.

N – Vessels, pumps, valves, piping systems, storage tanks, core support structures, concrete containments, and transport packaging

NA – Field installation and shop assembly of all items

NPT – Parts, appurtenances, welded tubular products, and piping subassemblies

NS – Supports

NV – Pressure relief valves

N3 – Transportation containments and storage containments

OWN – Nuclear power plant owner


NUCLEAR MATERIAL ORGANIZATION CERTIFICATION

The Nuclear Material Organization Certification Program certifies organizations that provide materials and services to the nuclear power industry.

Quality System Certificates (QSC) issued by ASME verify the adequacy of a Material Organization’s quality system program. This quality system program provides assurance that the organization’s operations, processes, and services related to the procurement, manufacture, and supply of material, source material, and unqualified source material are performed in accordance with the requirements of the ASME BPVC, Section III, NCA-3800 and NCA-3900.
