About the NBIC R Stamp:
The National Board R symbol stamp is for the repair and/or alteration of boilers, pressure vessels, and other pressure-retaining items.  Some prerequisites are required to maintain the R Certificate of Authorization including maintaining an inspection agreement and having a written quality program that complies with requirements of the current edition of the NBIC’s Inspection Code.

About the ASME S Stamp:
The ASME S symbol stamp is for power boilers and applies to two types of boilers under Section I of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code.  It applies to boilers in which steam or other vapor is produced at a pressure greater than 15psig and it applies to high temperature water boilers intended for use with operating pressures greater than 160psig.  A complete Quality Control (QC) Program is required to maintain an ASME S symbol stamp.
