When should we go for code stamping of a vessel. Is it only a local body requirement? what is the cost for code stamping a vessel. Can anyone give a rough value? What are the benefits of code stamping?

Hello Ganesh

You need to contact the ASME, as they have to list you. I am not an expert on the procedure, but if you contact the National Board at:

1055 Crupper Avenue
Columbus, Ohio 43229-1183
Phone: 614.888.8320
FAX: 614.888.0750
Email: getinfo@nationalboard.org,


You should be able to get full details.

Yes it is a local body requirement based on service conditions which end users has to adhere to .

All the calculations mainly preesure parts are to be reviewed by ASME certified engineer.

That means it is not necessary for an Indian job unless the technology provider or the client wants it?

It is little tricky and you are partially true. But for example if the vessel is in H2 service or operating on high pressure then no technology provider or client will say no to an indian job if recommended by the design engineer. Obviously it costs money and restricts the choice of vendors in india but atleast you are not compromising the quality.
