A Brief Introduction The sample text in this document should be used as a guide in preparing a QC Man ual that will

comply with the ASME Boiler & Pressure Vessel Codes Section I, Sec tion VIII Div. 1, Section VIII Div. 2 and Section VIII Div. 3, for Shop and Fiel d Activities and also for Repairs and Alterations according to the National Boar d Inspection Code. It is important to understand that this is only a guide and s hould be modified accordingly to reflect the QC System currently in use and for the Scope of Certificates of Authorization, which are being sought. For ease of reading, certain references have been made to various sample forms that many man ufacturers use in meeting the various Code requirements. When preparing your sys tem, the forms, and title of forms used by your organization should be reference d in place of these samples. For identification of the sample forms referenced i n this Manual they have been identified in blue text. Individuals responsible fo r performing various duties within this Manual in meeting Code requirements have been indicated as TITLE OF RESPONSIBLE in red. The Company Legal Name, and Addr ess are shown in purple. Throughout this sample the various paragraphs identifie d with ASME are Code requirements, placing your mouse over ASME will open a popup window which identifies the referencing Code paragraph or Check List item. This document is provided as a GUIDE ONLY and is not to be used VERBATIUM 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 Cod e Section I, ASME B31.1, Section VIII Div. 1, Div. 2, and Div. 3 it should not b e used verbatim, without review of the system and modification to reflect the sy stem which is actually in use.
