Actions to expedite the issuance of certificate(s):
- Form D should be checked to ensure the information requested has been provided and is correct. On a related note, the corporate/mailing address is the address where all future correspondence will be sent. The plant address is the physical location of the office/shop that will appear on the Certificate of Authorization.
- The ASME Application for Accreditation should be checked to ensure the information asked for has been provided and is correct.
- If there is a change in the company name, the company must submit a statement-of-responsibility letter in order to retain the same certificate numbers. If not provided, new certificate numbers will be issued along with new authorized and expiration dates.
