The operational integrity and safety of pressurized systems and their components is regarded to be of paramount concern at all management levels. The inspection, technical development and applications of such systems was the subject of a conference organized by the IMechE in March 1991. A range of topics was covered including legislation and requirements, testing and inspection procedures and the effectiveness, innovation and management aspects of in-service inspection of nuclear pressure components.
