Who can repair a pressure vessel?

An organization that has obtained a Certificate of Authorization for pressure vessel repairs from the National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspectors is allowed to repair pressure vessels.

Are pressure vessel requirements the same everywhere?

No, while they are very similar, there are subtle variations within the U.S. as the legislature in each state is responsible for determining local requirements. The same applies to other North American countries whose regulations also differ slightly. Local regulations should always be consulted.
