The ASME Certification Mark, which is regarded as the hallmark of acceptance and certification, is used to indicate that the stamped item(s) conform to the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Codes (BPVCs).
Utilization of the Certification Mark is a means of complying with the laws and regulations in nearly all U.S. States and Canadian Provinces. In addition, it has been estimated that over 100 countries accept the ASME BPVC as a means of meeting their government safety regulations.
The quality systems of more than 6,500 companies in more than 70 countries are currently certified by ASME. Whether or not an ASME Code Symbol Stamp is legally required, it provides users with a high degree of confidence that the stamped items conform to established safety standards.
