APPENDIX 47 COMPLIANT

Don't Let The New Regulations Stop You From Manufacturing

The 2021 Code Edition of ASME Section VIII, Div 1, has new requirements for all “U” Stamp Certificate Holders. The new provisions of Appendix 47 limit who can perform and approve the design function for pressure vessels.

 

Vertical Vessels

Prior to the 2021 Edition, Section VIII, Division 1 of the ASME® Code was largely mute concerning specific qualification requirements of those individuals involved in the design of pressure vessels. With the addition of Appendix 47 to the Code, this is no longer the case. Smaller manufacturers who do not have a Certifying Engineer on staff may find the requirements of this new appendix impact their design operations and bottom line. Since this is a new appendix affecting all manufacturers of pressure vessels, revisions and/or clarifications to this Appendix, whether enacted with a new Edition of the Code or as an ASME® Code Committee interpretation, are likely.
