The first Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code (1914 Edition) was published in 1915; it consisted of one book of 114 pages, each of which measured 5 inches by 8 inches. Today there are 28 books, including 12 books dedicated to the Construction and Inspection of Nuclear Power Plant Components and two Code Case books. The 28 books are either Standards that provide the rules for fabricating a component or they are support documents such as Materials (Section II, Parts A through D), Non-Destructive Examination (Section V) and Welding (Section IX). Code Cases provide rules that permit the use of materials and alternative methods of construction that are not covered by existing B&PVC rules. The 2001 Edition of the Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code was over 16,000 pages, each of which measures 8-1/2 inches by 11 inches.
