ASME PCC-1-2022: What are considered to be compliant Joint Assembly Record Tags?
As mentioned above, the information needed on joint assembly record tags depends on the needs and resources of the user, and the risk level of the joint.
It is advised a joint criticality analysis is carried out to determine the likelihood and consequence of failure for any given joint. Once this process has been carried out and the risk level of each joint has been declared, it will inform the level of record needed for them.
Based on each individual joints risk level, the user may follow one of the below paths for tagging:
- For joints deemed high risk, a long assembly record will be used
- For joints deemed lower risk, a short or medium length assembly record tag will be used
These tags should be clear, easy to read, and durable to withstand the harsh environments they are placed in.
Achieve Zero Incidents, and Joint Assembly Record compliance with REGALTAGS
In the latest PCC-1 document, our multipart tear-off FLANjTAGS® have been recommended as being compliant for joints of “all risk levels”. These tags provide a highly visual status record to show that all steps of the flange break process have been safely carried out. The sequentially numbered tear-off sections provide visual evidence of each step being carried out and can be retained as an effective audit trail.
