(a) Requirements for the Certified Individual (CI). The CIshall(1)be an employee of the Manufacturer orAssembler.(2)be qualified and certified by the Manufacturer orAssembler. Qualifications shall include as a minimum(-a)knowledge of the requirements of this Divi-sion for the application of the Certification Mark and ap-propriate Designator(-b)knowledge of the Manufacturer’s or Assem-bler’s quality program(-c)training commensurate with the scope, com-plexity, or special nature of the activities to which over-sight is to be provided(3)have a record, maintained and certified by theManufacturer or Assembler, containing objective evi-dence of the qualifications of the CI and the training pro-gram provided(b) Duties of the Certified Individual (CI). The CI shall(1)verify that each item to which the CertificationMark is applied meets all applicable requirements of thisDivision and has a current capacity certification for theCertification Mark with appropriate Designator(2)review documentation for each lot of items to bestamped to verify, for the lot, that requirements of this Di-vision have been completed(3)sign the Certificate of ConformanceForm K-4orForm K-5, as appropriate, prior to release of control ofthe item(c) Certificate of ConformanceForm K-4orForm K-5(1)The appropriate Certificate of Conformance shallbe filled out by the Manufacturer or Assembler and signedby the CI. Multiple duplicate pressure relief devices maybe recorded on a single entry, provided the devices areidentical and produced in the same lot.(2)The Manufacturer’s or Assembler’s written qual-ity control program shall include requirements for com-pletion of Certificates of Conformance forms andretention by the Manufacturer or Assembler for a mini-mum of 6 years.ASME BPVC.VIII.3-2015210Copyright ASME International (BPVC) Provided by IHS under license with ASME Licensee=Mattco Manufacturing/5970597001, User=Ahlgren, JasonNot for Resale, 01/29/2016 14:06:41 MSTNo reproduction or networking permitted without license from IHS--``,,,,,`,,,,``,,```,,``,,``-`-`,,`,,`,`,,`---
ARTICLE KR-5CERTIFICATION OF FLOW CAPACITY OF PRESSURE RELIEFVALVESKR-500FLOW CAPACITY CERTIFICATIONTESTSKR-501FLUID MEDIAFlow capacity certification tests shall be conductedwith liquids, or vapors as appropriate. For fluids whichare to be handled near their critical point, or in any regionwhere their thermodynamic properties are significantlynonlinear, or where a change of phase may occur in thevalve (flashing), the flow capacity shall be determinedfrom the vapor and liquid capacity data using appropriatecorrelations and procedures. Saturated water service isaddressed inKR-532(a). Alternatively, the flow capacityand design of the overpressure protection system maybe specified by the User or his Agent, based on basic data,testing, and demonstration on such actual fluids at ex-pected operating conditions. This information is statedin the User’s Design Specification; seeKG-311.11.
