The National Board Inspection Code was first published in 1946 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 BNIC is organized into three parts to coincide with specific post-construction activities involving pressure-retaining items. Part one is installation. This part provides the requirements and guidance to ensure all types of pressure-retaining items are installed and function properly. Installation includes meeting specific safety criteria for construction, materials, design, supports, safety devices, operation, testing, and maintenance. Part two is inspection. This part provides information and guidance needed to perform and document inspection for all types of pressure-retaining items. This part includes information on personnel safety, non-destructive examination, tests, failure mechanisms, types of pressure equipment, fitness for service, risk based assessments, and performance based standards. The third part is about repairs and alterations. This part provides information and guidance to perform, verify, and document acceptable repairs or alterations to pressure-retaining items regardless of code of construction. Alternative methods for examination, testing, heat treatment, etc, are provided when the original code of construction requirements cannot be met. The purpose of the NBIC is 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, repair, & alteration. The NBIC is intended to provide rules, information, and guidance to manufacturers, jurisdictions, inspectors, owner-users, installers, contractors, and other individuals and organizations performing or involved in post-construction activities. 

It is a 3 volume set
