ConstructionWhat are the standards for new construction?

The standards for new construction are:
(1) ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code, current edition, Sections I, III, IV, VIII, Division 1, 2, 3, X, XII;
(2) ASME PVHO-1 Safety Standard for Pressure Vessels for Human Occupancy, current edition; and
(3) Standards of construction approved by the chief inspector and meeting the National Board Criteria for Registration of Boilers, Pressure Vessels and Other Pressure Retaining Items.
These codes and standards may be used on or after the date of issue and become mandatory twelve months after adoption by the board as specified in RCW 70.79.050(2). ASME Code Cases may be approved for use when accepted by the chief inspector. The board recognizes that the ASME Code states that new editions of the code become mandatory six months after the date of issue. For nuclear systems, components and parts the time period for addenda becoming mandatory is defined in the Code of Federal Regulations.
