To develop, review, and maintain, for publication in Section III of the Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code, rules governing the construction of: Division 1 vessels, storage tanks, piping, pumps, valves, metal containments, supports, and core support structures; Division 2 concrete containment vessels with metallic liners; Division 3 storage and transportation containments and their internal support structures for spent fuel and high-level radioactive material and waste; Division 4 components for fusion devices; and Division 5 (high temperature reactors) vessels, storage tanks, piping, pumps, valves, supports, core support structures and nonmetallic core components for use in nuclear power plants and other nuclear facilities. Construction, as used in this charter, is an all-inclusive term that includes material, design, fabrication, installation, examination, testing, overpressure protection, inspection, stamping, and certification. These rules focus on assuring the pressure boundary integrity and the structural integrity, as applicable, of the component or item being constructed.
