API 580-Risk Based Inspection Course
API 510 Prepratory Course
API 510 – Pressure Vessel Inspection Code: In-Service Inspection, Rating, Repair, and Alteration – is an inspection code developed and published by the American Petroleum Institute (API). The code covers inspection, repair, alteration, and rerating activities for pressure vessels and the pressure relieving devices that protect vessels covered by the code. The most recent edition (10th) was released May 2014.
First published in 1958 as a recommended practice, API 510 serves as a guide for internal and
external inspections, as well as on-stream and thickness measurement inspections of pressure
vessels. The code has grown and evolved over the years to account for innovations in
technology, changes in inspection practices, and new methodologies.
