It is a 3 volume set

It is the purpose of the NBIC to maintain the integrity of pressure-retaining items by providing rules for installation, and after the items have been placed into service, by providing rules for inspection and repair and alteration, thereby ensuring that these items may continue to be safely used. The NBIC is intended to provide rules, information, and guidance tio manufacturers, Jurisdictions, inspectors, owner-users, installers, contractors, and other individuals and organizations performing or involved in post-construction activities, thereby encouraging the uniform administration of rules pertaining to pressure-retaining items. Includes three volumes: Installation, Inspection, and Repairs & Alterations.

The National Board Inspection Code (NBIC) was first published in 1945 as a guide for chief inspectors. It has become an internationally recognized standard, adopted by most US and Canadian jurisdictions. The NBIC provides standards for the installation, inspection, and repair and/or alteration of boilers, pressure vessels, and pressure relief devices.

The National Board is an American National Standards Institute (ANSI) accredited standards developing organization. It follows approved standards development procedures (NB-240, National Board Inspection Code Procedures) and undergoes regular audits by ANSI.

The NBIC is developed and maintained by consensus committee (the NBIC Committee) composed of industry experts.

Each year, the NBIC committees update the NBIC. The updates are presented on the National Board’s Web site for public review in April-May and August-September. Finalized updates are published annually as an addendum, generally in January.
