ASME is built with the most modern web standards, which give you a better & more reliable experience.
In preparation for obtaining ASME accreditation/certification, it is recommended that applicants review all of the information related to their program including the applicable forms, checklists, and associated fees. This will ensure that applicants have a thorough understanding of the accreditation/certification program prior to submitting an application. Things to do prior to submitting an application:
Organizations seeking ASME accreditation/certification are required to submit the proper application forms and fees prior to receiving a review/survey date.
Please note: For all inquiries pertaining to the R, VR, NR, and NB certificates, please contact The National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspectors at email@example.com, or 1-614-888-8320.
The purpose of the review/survey is to evaluate the applicant's quality manual and the implementation of the quality program. The extent of the review/survey will be determined by ASME based on a review of the applicant's intended scope of activities as described in the application.
This assessment ensures that the applicant's quality program has been adequately implemented and that it complies with the requirements in the associated ASME standard. When the assessment has been completed, the review/survey team leader will submit a written report to ASME.
A certificate will be granted by ASME only after the applicant successfully demonstrates the implementation of their quality program to the ASME review/survey team. After ASME reviews the report submitted by the review/survey team, the Society will either authorize the issuance of the certificate or request additional action by the applicant. Certificate holders may request changes to their certificate(s) after issuance.
