Boilers & Pressure Vessels

Replacement of a Nameplate and/or Re-stamping of Code Data

From time to time, the stamping on a pressure-retaining item becomes indistinct or the nameplate is lost, illegible or detached.  However, traceability to the original pressue-retaining item is still possible.  In order to maintain that traceability, a replacement nameplate and/or the re-stamping of code data may be required.  

TSASK information paper IP-2017-04-19 Replacement Nameplates and/or Re-stamping of Code Data on Pressure-Retaining Items details the requirements for replacement nameplates and/or the re-stamping of code data and provides guidance in the completion of the application form - TSK-0016 Replacement of a Nameplate and/or Re-stamping of Code Data.  

This new information paper and form are not to be used by companies with a National Board R Symbol Certificate of Authorization.  Those companies shall continue to use form NB-136 as found in Part 2, Section 5 of the National Board Inspection Code.
