ASME develops codes and standards that enhance public safety, and provides lifelonglearning and technical exchange opportunities benefiting the global engineering and technologycommunity. ASME has more than 127,000 members worldwide. ASME'S VISION, MISSION STATEMENT AND CORE VALUES VisionTo be the premier organization for promoting the art, science and practice of mechanical andmultidisciplinary engineering and allied sciences to our diverse communities throughout the world. file:///C|/Users/BIPIN/Desktop/American%20Society%20of%20Mechanical%20Engineers%20-%20What%20is%20ASME%20-.htm (1 of 3)8/2/2011 3:10:13 PM  American Society of Mechanical Engineers - What is ASME - What is ASME ASME B31.3 - Process PipingStandards defined on this website   ASME International Logo Mission StatementTo promote and enhance the technical competency and professional well-being of our members, andthrough quality programs and activities in mechanical engineering, better enable its practitioners tocontribute to the well-being of humankind.ASME Core ValuesIn performing its mission, ASME adheres to these core values: q   Embrace integrity and ethical conduct q   Embrace diversity and respect the dignity and culture of all people q   Nurture and treasure the environment and our natural and man-made resources q   Facilitate the development, dissemination and application of engineering knowledge q   Promote the benefits of continuing education and of engineering education q   Respect and document engineering history while continually embracing change q   Promote the technical and societal contribution of engineersASME CredoSetting the Standard......in Engineering Excellence...in Knowledge, Community & Advocacy...for the benefit of humanity ABOUT CODES & STANDARDS ... WHAT IS A STANDARD ? A standard can be defined as a set of technical definitions and guidelines, how to instructions for designers, manufacturers and users. Standardspromote safety, reliability, productivity and efficiency in almost every industry that relies on engineering components or equipment. Standards can runfrom a few paragraphs to hundreds of pages, and are written by experts with knowledge and expertise in a particular field who sit on manycommittees.Are standards mandatory ?Standards are considered voluntary because they serve as guidelines, but do not of themselves have the force of law. ASME cannot force anymanufacturer, inspector, or installer to follow ASME standards. Their use is voluntary.Standards become mandatory when they have been incorporated into a business contract or incorporated into regulations.What is a code ? file:///C|/Users/BIPIN/Desktop/American%20Society%20of%20Mechanical%20Engineers%20-%20What%20is%20ASME%20-.htm (2 of 3)8/2/2011 3:10:13 PM  American Society of Mechanical Engineers - What is ASME - A code is a standard that has been adopted by one or more governmental bodies and has the force of law.Why are standards effective ?Standards are a vehicle of communication for producers and users. They serve as a common language, defining quality and establishing safetycriteria. Costs are lower if procedures are standardized; training is also simplified.Interchangeability is another reason. It is not uncommon for a consumer to buy a nut in California for a bolt purchased in New Jersey.Source for this page: ASME Home Page  © Werner Sölken 2008 - 2011.
