Codes & Standards Interpretations On-Line

ASME issues written replies to inquiries concerning interpretation of technical aspects of the Code. The interpretations for each individual Section will be published separately and will be included as part of the update service to that Section. Interpretations of Section III, Divisions 1 and 2, will be included with the update service to Subsection NCA.

Interpretations of the Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code are posted in January and July on this page. These interpretations will become all or part of the Interpretations Volume that will be printed with the next Edition of BPVC.
