The Board of High Pressure Piping Systems is considering possible amendments to Minnesota Rules, Chapter 5230, the High Pressure Piping Code, to update references to national codes and standards contained therein to the most recent editions and revisions available. The national codes and standards currently incorporated by reference into Chapter 5230 are not subject to frequent change, but from time to time are updated and republished by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). This proposed rulemaking intends to amend those rule parts which incorporate by reference ASME and ANSI standards and update those references to the most current versions available.
