The 2019 ASME BPVC Has Published - What Do You Need to Know?

The 2019 edition of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code (BPVC) was recently published on July 1. And with it, operators, stamp holders, inspectors, engineers, quality and other technical professionals have already begun tearing into each section and evaluating the impacts of the changes published in the newest edition. While these companies and teams have six months before the 2019 Code officially goes into effect, we often hear that it’s just not enough time to evaluate and implement the engineering changes needed to stay compliant.

  • Over 40 major changes were announced across the twelve sections of the Code
  • A new Section III, Division 5, Subsection HH Subpart B was released
  • A new Division in Section XI
  • Major editorial alignment changes
  • Hundreds of other changes across the various sections

We’d love to hear from you - How are you consuming and addressing these changes?

1. Wait until the 2019 Code goes into effect in January 2020 and address before next certification audit.

2. Waiting for OEM or supplier to implement changes to their requirements and/ or products.

3. Team is actively reviewing hardcopy books - earmarks, sticky notes or tabs flagging potential impacts from changes.

4. Team already reviewing newly published 2019 version within an online subscription platform.

5. Team is utilizing version comparison (or redline) functionality that highlights changes from the 2017 to the 2019 edition.

6. Attend the complimentary 2019 ASME BPVC Key Changes Webinar that provided insights into major changes in each section of the new Code.

7. Download the complimentary 2019 ASME BPVC Fact Book.

8. Other.

There are a lot of anonymous posters who could benefit from this.

Thanks Sir Robin,

I currently have a system quoted to a customer which may be affected, production and engineering will review for answers.

Thanks Again.

Before I retired, we had to determine which changes affected us; these changes for us were usually small scattered parts of the total code. However, many times, local or county codes superseded the national codes--that is, they needed to do their own thing in addition to the time lag to get the changes into their local code. I imagine it was mostly politics that said they couldn't just adopt the latest edition of the national code.
