The API runs a certification programme for in-service inspectors. This is a system of certification of individual inspectors (not companies) involved in the in-service inspection of pressure vessels, piping and storage tanks. It is used extensively in the USA (it is a legal requirement in many states for inspectors to be certified) and in other countries that use API/ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers) codes. In countries where it is not a legal requirement, it is becoming increasingly recognized as a ‘benchmark’ standard for certification of inspectors. These are termed the Individual Certification Programmes (ICPs).
