Export of pressure vessels according to JIS (Japanese industrial standard)

The Japanese Industrial Standards define the standards that are used in industry in Japan. The design of pressure equipment according to JIS is based on ASME, but there are some special requirements for the selection of materials and parts. For example, sight glasses and screws must undergo a separate component test in accordance with Japanese national regulations. Although TÜV Rheinland Industrie Service GmbH, for example, is usually used as the designated foreign testing agency (DFTA) for a tank manufactured in Germany, it is up to the Japanese authority to determine the scope of testing in Japan. As a rule, a document check and a visual inspection including a dimensional check are carried out on site in Japan. We have already successfully completed several projects with export to Japan, for example a vessel with manufacturing/calculation basis according to ASME Section VIII Div.1 / Edition 2021 (Joint Efficiency E=0.7) with classification according to JIS B8265:2017: Second class pressure Vessel.
