2015 marks the first edition of the new two-year revision cycle for the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code (BPVC). This mandatory code sets the requirements for safe operation, manufacture, service and inspection of boilers and pressure vessel systems in nuclear and non-nuclear environments.

Users of the code have historically witnessed three-year revision cycles, but the shift to the two-year revision cycle are sparking conversations about impacts on processes, accelerated adoption of code requirements, as well as training and communications about key changes.

In response to these growing challenges, IHS has launched a 2015 ASME BPVC Survey to capture insights about formats, impact on operations, adoption of key changes, as well as committee involvement. The results of the survey will be shared during an upcoming joint Webcast with ASME and IHS to discuss key changes to the 2015 edition of the code.
