IHS Markit is your souce for publications from HSB Global Standards

HSB Global Standards summarizes all changes to the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code in the HSB Global Standards Code Synopsis, thereby eliminating a line-by-line comparison to determine changes to the Code every two years.

Each edition of the HSB ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code Synopsis is related to a specific Edition/Addenda of the BPVC. In many instances, HSB Global Standards’ Codes and Standards staff have also provided some brief notes to clarify the revision to the Code and its potential impact on Code stamp holders and users, providing valuable insight into the intent of these changes. Inspectors, stamp holders, quality managers and other technical professionals utilize the Code Synopsis to:

  • simplify identification and research into ASME BPVC revisions
  • gain insights into intent of changes
  • quickly evaluate potential impacts and improve operations
