Overview of ASME PCC-3 - Inspection Planning Using Risk-based Methods

ASME PCC-3, Inspection Planning Using Risk-based Methods, is a standard developed by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) specifically for applications involving fixed pressure-containing equipment and components. ASME PCC-3 provides guidance to owners, operators, and designers of pressure-containing equipment for developing and implementing an inspection program. These guidelines include means for assessing an inspection program and its plan. The approach emphasizes safe and reliable operation through cost-effective inspection. A spectrum of complimentary risk analysis approaches (qualitative through fully quantitative) should be considered as part of the inspection planning process.
