Since 1916, American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) has accredited companies to certify that their products, services and quality systems comply with ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel (BPV) Code, which establishes the rules governing design, fabrication, and inspection of boilers & pressure vessels during manufacture and assembly. The ASME Code Stamps are regarded as a hallmark of acceptance and certification and indicate that the product conforms to the latest edition of the ASME BPV Codes. The ASME Code Stamp is accepted in over 100 countries as a means of meeting their government safety regulations. AHEC is now one of the few companies in Oman to be accredited with these prestigious certifications.
