About the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Certification Program

The ASME BPVC Certification Program conforms to the rules governing the design, fabrication, assembly, and inspection of boiler and pressure vessel components during construction. In 1916, shortly after the first publication of the "Rules for the Construction of Stationary Boilers and for Allowable Working Pressures" (known today as the ASME BPVC), ASME began offering certification to companies in the pressure equipment industry to certify their quality control systems comply. Products manufactured by ASME BPVC Certificate Holders are certified and stamped with the Certification Mark in accordance with the applicable ASME BPVC Section. Today there are more than 6,500 Certificate Holders in the ASME BPVC Certification Program. Scopes offered by the ASME BPVC Certification Program vary and include but are not limited to: power boilers, heating boilers, pressure vessels, fiber-reinforced plastic vessels, transport tanks and valves.
