VOLUNTEERING FOR BPVC COMMITTEES
For more than 100 years, ASME has successfully attracted volunteer technical experts to develop, maintain and disseminate ASME codes and standards. Participation by volunteers is the lifeblood of the BPVC.
BPVC committee volunteers gain
• Early Awareness of critical technical and regulatory issues that could directly impact your business.
• Benchmarking leading organizations in your industry, to see how your business practices measure up.
• Professional Networking with nearly 1,000 leading nuclear technical experts from across the country and around the world.
Involvement on BPVC committees provides companies with critical information, plus opportunities to expand their global networks and strengthen involvement in the decision-making process. Being involved in the development of ASME codes and standards provides early and ongoing awareness of technical issues in the industry and how others are dealing with them. This awareness allows participants to avoid these issues within their own organizations or to have solutions prepared should problems arise.
ASME also helps governments ensure the safety of their citizens and their environment through the adoption of ASME codes and standards to satisfy regulation. The use of ASME codes and standards lessens the burden on the government by providing a technically sound basis for achieving regulatory goals without imposing an unnecessary burden on industry. Government involvement on BPVC committees provides officials with critical information and strengthens involvement in the decision-making process so that regulations are understood and enforceable.
“BOILER CODE WEEKS”
The BPVC is kept current by a volunteer group of nearly 1,000 technical experts, balanced between the interests of industry, government and R&D. The BPVC committees meet in person four times per year during “Boiler Code Weeks” to consider requests for interpretations, revisions, and to develop new rules. Its consensus activities are conducted in a fully open and transparent manner; and culminate in a new edition of the BPVC, published every two years. BPVC committees benefit from a broad range of volunteer experience, from department heads and the top technical experts in their fields all the way to young engineers in their early-career stages. This mix helps assure that the resulting standards are truly visionary, while also being practical and applicable for everyday end-users. All those interested are welcome to apply.
