InspectionWhat are the standards for in-service inspection?

Where a conflict exists between the requirements of the standards listed below and this chapter, this chapter shall prevail. The duties of the in-service inspector do not include the installation's compliance with other standards and requirements (environmental, construction, electrical, undefined industrial standards, etc.), for which other regulatory agencies have authority and responsibility to oversee.
(1) The standard for inspection of nonnuclear boilers, unfired pressure vessels, and safety devices in the National Board Inspection Code (NBIC), current edition Part 2, excluding Section 6, Supplements 1, 2, 5, 6, and 7 which may be used as nonmandatory guidelines.
(2) The standard for inspection of historical steam boilers of riveted construction preserved, restored, or maintained for hobby or demonstration use, shall be Appendix "C" of the National Board Inspection Code (NBIC) 2004 edition with 2006 addenda.
(3) The standard for inspection of nuclear items is ASME section XI. The applicable ASME Code edition and addenda shall be as specified in the owner in-service inspection program plan.
(4) Where a petroleum or chemical process industry owner/user inspection agency so chooses, the standard for inspection of unfired pressure vessels used by the owner shall be the API-510 Pressure Vessel Inspection Code, current edition. This code may be used on or after the date of issue.
(5) TAPPI TIP 0402-16, revised 2011 may be used for both pulp dryers and paper machine dryers when requested by the owner. When requested by the owner, this document becomes a requirement and not a guideline.
