This paper is to compare the sections on materials between ASME-BVC and RCC-M code. This paper states the layout structure and the content about NPP materials specified in the two codes and shows the comparison results. This paper emphasizes particularly on the basic differences between two codes; ASME code focuses on fracture toughness requirements for pressure-retaining ferrite materials and RCC-M code focuses on Susceptibility to intergranular corrosion for austenitic and austenitic-ferrite stainless steel.
