If the manufacturer's validity of Vessels 'U' stamp certification only up to 2017,

As a purchaser, what would be the renewal criteria, after the above validity ?

When a purchaser orders stamped pressure vessel from a stamp holder manufacturer, it is not necessary to hire a third party inspector.

By inference, if the U stamp is not applicable, a third party inspector is necessary to accredit the vessel for burst/collapse indemnity insurance purposes.

Based on my understanding of your question, the answer is "nothing".

If the stamp was valid at the time of manufacture of the vessel, there is nothing for the purchaser to do after the period of validity ends for the manufacturer to apply other stamps to other vessels.

If my understanding of your question is incorrect, you need to communicate your question in a better manner.

That is how I interpreted the posted question too. You beat me to the answer. Much better choice of words than I could have done. I would have confused the issue even more.

Not sure what your asking, but if the vessel was built in the period of being a certified carrier of the stamp, it's fine. Each ASME shop has to renew its certification every (3) years.

Let's not get technical....LOL!

If the OEM stamp is out of date when manufactured it is out, plain and simple. Time of delivery has nothing to do with manufacture date.

Good old Judge Wapner! May he R.I.P.

Great movie selection also!

Fantastic acting job on Hoffman's part.

Nothing is ever out of date as long as it is useful.
