Pressure vessel requirements vary state by state. Some states have a boiler law, but others do not. Florida boiler law, for example, is detailed in Florida Statute 554, “The Boiler Safety Act,” which sets minimum standards for construction, installation, operation, maintenance, and repairs for boilers.
Though not standardized nationwide, the most common state laws governing pressure vessels require adherence to the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and/or the National Board Inspection Code (NBIC).

If you own and operate a pressure vessel at your business, it’s more than likely that it will need to meet these basic requirements:
Inspectors or American Petroleum Institute (API) 510, “Pressure Vessel Inspection Code.”
Plans to alter or repair pressure vessels must be approved by an authorized inspector, and the repairs themselves must be performed by test-qualified welders.
