A Century of Safety
When ASME’s founders—including Henry
R. Worthington, Alexander Lyman Holley
and John Edson Sweet, along with other
prominent industrialists and technical
innovators of the nineteenth century—
gathered in New York City for the first
time in 1880, the main topic of discussion
centered on the need for standardized
tools and machine parts as well as uniform
work practices in the dawning industrial
age. Engineering standards, the founders
agreed, would ensure safety, reliability and
operational efficiency in machine design
and mechanical production.
ASME issued its first standard, Code for
the Conduct of Trials of Steam Boilers, in
1884. This paper evolved into Rules for
the Construction of Stationary Boilers and
for Allowable Working Pressure—the first
edition of ASME’s now-legendary Boiler
and Pressure Vessel Code (BPVC)—issued
in 1914 and published in 1915.
The BPVC has grown over the decades
to include 28 books and 14,000 pages
covering industrial and residential boilers
as well as nuclear reactor components,
transport tanks, and other forms of
pressure vessels. It is kept current by
nearly 1,000 volunteer technical experts—

drawn from a balance of interests among
industry, government and R&D—who
operate in a fully open and transparent
manner via consensus process.
The resulting “living document” remains a
worldwide model for assuring the safety,
reliability and operational efficiency first
envisioned by ASME’s founders more than
a century ago.

Boilers and Pressure Vessels
Since its first issuance in 1914, ASME’s
BPVC has pioneered modern standardsdevelopment, maintaining a commitment
to enhance public safety and technological
advancement to meet the needs of a
changing world. This “International Historic
Mechanical Engineering Landmark” now
has been incorporated into the laws of
state and local jurisdictions of the United
States and nine Canadian provinces.
More than 100,000 copies of the BPVC
are in use in 100 countries around the
world, with translations into a number
of languages. The boiler and pressurevessel sections of the BPVC have long

been considered essential within such
industries as electric power-generation,
petrochemical, and transportation,
among others.

the nuclear industry since its inception,
