4. ASME III Organisational differences vs RCC-M or Industrial Codes or Standards
RCC-M or Industrial Codes or Standards :
European Members States, China, …impose Third Parties for assessment of conformity and survey of manufacturing, through their regulation.
Accreditation: RCC-M or European Standards (EN 13445…) do not required accreditation.
Only for Industrial Codes or Standards ,European Regulation (PED 97/23/EC), CE marking is the testimony of assessment under Third Party survey.
Authorized Inspection and Code Symbol Stamps: RCC-M does not require Code Symbol Stamping.
Only for Industrial Codes or Standards CE marking is the testimony of assessment under Notified Body survey.
RCC-M uses ISO-9000/2000 with additional requirement of IAEA 50-C-QA (GS-R- 3 in 2009). RCC-M to require that the documentation package include shop travelers, which are not specifically addressed by ASME Sect. III and are not usually included in the final documentation package for Section III components
