Section III, Appendices o Revision to Non Mandatory Appendix D -- Recommended preheat temperatures for materials. o New non mandatory appendix, Subsection NF E, to address dampers, energy absorbers and snubbers. o New non mandatory appendix DD, Polyethylene Material Organization Responsibilities Diagram.

Section IV: Gerardo Moino, ext. 8534, moinog@asme.org Manufacturer's Data Report forms are being revised in order to simplify the requirements for the Authorized Inspector to complete the "Certificate of Shop Inspection" and the "Certificate of Field Assembly Inspection" portions of the Manufacturers data report form by requiring only the Inspector's signature, National Board commission number and endorsement to be recorded. A new paragraph covering tolerances is being added under Part HG, as HG-103, titled "Tolerances". This revision was recommended, since forewords are not officially considered part of the Code and any language perceived as mandatory and enforceable needed to be moved to the body of the Code. A new Appendix containing rules for the governing BPVC Edition and Addenda is being added to Section IV as well as revisions needed throughout the Code to clarify the requirements. It had been suggested that the BPVC be revised to clarify the requirements rather than relying on interpretations. During work on this item, it became apparent that clarification was needed for establishing the governing BPVC Edition and Addenda for new construction and field assembly as well as for parts. Also, as a result of initiating this item, CSP-9 was revised to establish a policy for establishing the effective BPVC Edition and Addenda to be used to construct an item that is to be stamped with an ASME Product Certification Mark (e.g. Code Symbol Stamp).

Section V: Joseph Brzuszkiewicz, ext. 8533, brzuszkiewiczj@asme.org T-120(f) was revised to permit ISO 9712 and the ASNT Central Certification Program to fulfill requirements for training, experience, and examination. The T-430, T-460, and T-470 series of paragraphs and related figures were revised to clarify "weld metal overlay cladding" terminology. T-463.1. and T-472.2 were revised for straight beam examination calibration block guidance and restricted access weld applicability. T-462.7 and Article 4 Nonmandatory P were added to provide rules on when a split distance amplitude correction (DAC) curve is required and provide an example of how the curve is constructed.

Section VI: Gerardo Moino, ext. 8534, moinog@asme.org (No major revisions for the 2013 Edition, although major revisions are expected for the 2015 Edition).

Section VII: Umberto D'Urso, ext. 8535, dursou@asme.org (No major revisions for the 2013 Edition, although major revisions are expected for the 2015 Edition).

Section VIII, Division 1: Steve Rossi, ext. 7522, rossisj@asme.org New Nonmandatory Appendix on Guidance to the Responsibilities of the User and the Designated Agent.
