user, jurisdiction or AIA responsible for in-service inspection of the unit, are made in
accordance with the applicable requirements of the National Board Inspection Code (NBIC);
ASME Code and this Quality Control Manual.

15.0.2 Repair - is defined as the work to restore a boiler or pressure vessel to a safe and satisfactory
operating condition, provided there is no deviation from the original construction.

15.0.3 Alteration - is defined as a change in any item described in the original ASME Manufacturer's
Data Report, which affects the pressure containing capability of a boiler or pressure vessel.

15.0.4 Re-rating - a boiler or pressure vessel by increasing the maximum allowable working pressure or
temperature is considered an alteration, provided there is no physical change to the object. A
reduction in minimum temperature for a pressure vessel, requiring additional mechanical tests,
is also an alteration.

15.1.0 AUTHORITY AND RESPONSIBILITY

15.1.1 The TITLE OF RESPONSIBLE is responsible for compliance with this Quality Control Manual for
shop and field repairs to Code items.

15.2.0 PROCEDURES

the Authorized Inspector, who may require that evidence of acceptance of the method and
extent of repair or alteration by the jurisdiction or insurance carrier responsible for the in-
service inspection be provided before starting work.

15.2.2 The TITLE OF RESPONSIBLE, prior to the start of work, provides the Authorized Inspector with
drawings, calculations, procedures, TRAVELER, copy of the original ASME Manufacturer's
Data Report for the item and any other documents necessary for the Authorized Inspector to
accept the method of repair or alteration and to designate their required inspection points.

15.2.3 For alterations to boilers and pressure vessels, the TITLE OF RESPONSIBLE will provide the
Authorized Inspector with:

a. The Form R-1 Report of Welded Repair or Alteration prepared by the original manufacturer
or another holder of a valid "S", "U" or "U2" Certificate of Authorization as applicable,
certifying that the design changes meet the NBIC and have been verified by their
Authorized Inspector.
b. Revised calculations.
c. For physical changes, Partial Data Reports for welded parts.

15.2.4 For alterations consisting only of re-rating, when revised calculations cannot be obtained from the
original manufacturer, they may be prepared by a registered professional engineer, and sent
for review to the jurisdiction at the location of installation, before being presented to the
Authorized inspector.

The text shown in this sample QC Manual should act as a guide in developing a QC program which meets the requirements of the
ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code Section I, ASME B31.1, Section VIII Div. 1, Div. 2, and Div. 3 it should not be used

responsible for in-service inspection for their review and acceptance, and, when required, to
the jurisdictional authority for approval before start of work.

15.2.6 The TITLE OF RESPONSIBLE, when requested by the Authorized Inspector, arranges for their
access to make all inspections of the vessel they deems necessary in order to accept the

when performed shall be documented on the current National Board Form R-1, Report of
Welded Repair or Alteration.

15.3.2 When the work is completed, the Form R-1 is prepared and certified in ink by the TITLE OF
RESPONSIBLE.

15.3.3 The final records, together with the completed Form R1 and any Manufacturer's Data Reports,
and for alterations the original Manufacturer's Data Report, are presented to the Authorized
Inspector for their review. When satisfied that all NBIC, Code and Manual requirements have
