Regulatory and Code updates for February 2015

Every month RAE produces a short summary of important changes to regulations and codes that may impact our clients. The following are the updates from the month of February:

ASME released the January 2015 interpretations for the Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code.  Code interpretations are the ASME response to inquiries concerning interpretation of technical aspects of the Code. These interpretations will become part of the Interpretations Volume in the next edition of the BPVC.

ASME B31.3 Process Piping, 2014 edition was released recently and redlines are also available through most major services (such as techstreet). Personnel involved in the design, construction, and inspection of process piping should familiarize themselves with the changes.

ASME PCC-2 Repair of Pressure Equipment and Piping, 2015 edition was released. This code covers both the repair of equipment as well as the pressure testing of equipment and piping. This is a key reference in the development of pneumatic test procedures in addition to ABSA AB-522 (within Alberta).

PPG News!

Policies and Procedures


All of our Policies, Procedures, and Guidelines (or more commonly known as PPGs), and some of our Safety documents will be accessible via REMS Field Reporting (RFR)! This  means that RAE Engineering and Inspection Ltd.’s field staff will always have access to the most up-to-date documents, even if they do not have access to internet!

This change is still in the planning and development phase, which I.T. anticipates will take about 10 to 12 weeks. So, we will keep you posted when this will be available to staff.

In the meantime, if you are field staff, please ensure you have all applicable Safety and PPG documents on hand when you’re out at site. There are organizations out there who like to hand out fines.

Please contact your friendly neighbourhood Support Services team member or Sherry Elless, Safety Coordinator if you require assistance.

With offices in Edmonton, Grande Prairie, Red Deer and Calgary, we are here to ensure that the needs of our clients are met.
