Our ASME committee work

ASME's standards are developed by technical committees – mechanical engineers and others who represent various facets of their industries, from manufacturers and installers to insurers, inspectors, distributors, regulatory agencies and end users.

Currently, more than 5,000 technical experts from around the world work with ASME worldwide to publish some 550 standards.

The AIA of Lloyd’s Register, Lloyd's Register Verification Limited, is actively involved in the ASME committee work. This benefits our clients in several ways: 

  • We assist new applicants in the certification process
  • We can pursue requests for interpretations or Code revisions of our clients and inspectors
  • Our surveyors are fully up-to-date due to our participating in the standards development process
  • We make our inspectors and clients aware of revisions to standards and their technical basis before they're published
