ASME conformity assessment programs—under which a company or an individual is assessed and certified based on demonstrated ability to meet the requirements of an ASME standard—continue to provide a vital service to enhancement of public safety and facilitation of international commerce.

For nearly 100 years, the strength of ASME standards and related product certifications is that they form an interlocking system based on having a set of requirements developed through an open and transparent consensus process. They involve independent, third-party inspection during the process, uniform qualification of inspectors, and acceptance by government entities. It is the common understanding and confidence and trust in this system, which have enabled regulated equipment built in one jurisdiction to be readily accepted for installation in another.

This confidence and acceptance, evident throughout state and provincial jurisdictions within the U.S. and Canada, have extended beyond North America. In 2010, ASME reached a milestone of certifying more than 6,000 manufacturers in 75 nations.

About Codes and Standards

ASME is the leading international developer of codes and standards associated with the art, science, and practice of mechanical engineering. Starting with the first issuance of its legendary Boiler & Pressure Vessel Code in 1914, ASME's codes and standards have grown to nearly 600 offerings currently in print. These offerings cover a breadth of topics, including pressure technology, nuclear plants, elevators / escalators, construction, engineering design, standardization, and performance testing.

Developing and revising ASME codes and standards occurs year-round. More than 4,700 dedicated volunteers — engineers, scientists, government officials, and others — contribute their technical expertise to protect public safety, while reflecting best practices of industry. The results of their efforts are being used in over 100 nations; thus setting the standard for code-development worldwide.
