About the ASME Pressure Relief Device Testing Laboratory Accreditation Program

The ASME Pressure Relief Device (PRD) Testing Laboratory Accreditation Program accredits manufacturers of pressure relief devices and assemblers of pressure relief valves. It is a hybrid program in that it accredits both the manufacturer and specific personnel within the manufacturing organization (the authorized observer). It is operated in conjunction with The National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspectors. Therefore, a manufacturer seeking this accreditation submits an application directly to ASME, but details about the program and review process can be found on The National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspector's website.

Companies that have been accredited through the PRD Accreditation Program are operating in accordance with the applicable rules of the associated ASME BPVC, the ASME PTC-25 standard, "Pressure Relief Devices," as well as one of the standards of construction accepted by The National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspectors.
