This chapter is to familiarize you with the specific NDE requirements contained in ASME V. API 650 references ASME V as the supporting code but only articles 1, 2, 6, 7 and 23 are required for use in the API 653 examination.

These articles of ASME V provide the main detail of the NDE techniques that are referred to in many of the API codes. Note that it is only the body of the articles that are included in the API examinations; the additional (mandatory and non-mandatory) appendices that some of the articles have are not examinable. We will now look at each of the articles 1, 2, 6, 7 and 23 in turn.
