Section III, Appendices

Revision to Non Mandatory Appendix D - Recommended preheat temperatures for materials. New non mandatory appendix, Subsection NF - E, to address dampers energy absorbers dampers, New non mandatory appendix DD, Polyethylene Material Organization Responsibilities Diagram.

Section IV
Manufacturer's Data Report forms are being revised in order to simplify the requirements for the Authorized Inspector to complete th "C the "Certificate tifi t of f Sh Shop Inspection" I ti " and d the th "Certificate "C tifi t of f Fi Field ld Assembly Inspection" portions of the Manufacturers data report form by requiring only the Inspector's signature, National Board commission number and endorsement to be recorded recorded. A new paragraph covering tolerances is being added under Part HG, as HG-103, titled "Tolerances". This revision was recommended since forewords are not officially considered part of recommended, the Code and any language perceived as mandatory and enforceable needed to be moved to the body of the Code.


Section IV
A new Appendix containing rules for the governing BPVC Edition and Addenda is being added to Section IV as well as revisions needed d d th throughout h t th the C Code d t to clarify l if th the requirements. i t It h had db been suggested that the BPVC be revised to clarify the requirements rather than relying on interpretations. During work on this item, it became apparent that clarification was needed for establishing the governing BPVC Edition and Addenda for new construction and field assembly as well as for parts. Also, as a result of initiating this item CSP-9 item, CSP 9 was revised to establish a policy for establishing the effective BPVC Edition and Addenda to be used to construct an item that is to be stamped with an ASME Product Certification Mark (e.g. ( g Code Symbol y Stamp). p)

Section V
T-120(f) was revised to permit ISO 9712 and the ASNT Central Certification Program to fulfill requirements for training, experience, and d examination. i ti The T-430, T-460, and T-470 series of paragraphs and related figures were revised to clarify "weld metal overlay cladding" t terminology. i l T-463.1. and T-472.2 were revised for straight beam examination calibration block guidance and restricted access weld applicability. T-462.7 and Article 4 Nonmandatory P were added to provide rules on when a split distance amplitude correction (DAC) curve is required and provide an example of how the curve is constructed.

Section VI
