Conformance to the OSHA mechanical Integrity requirements presented in 29CFR1910.119(j) requires a mechanical integrity inspection program. MSR can assist in this important task by ensuring compliance with regulatory requirements, review of inspection procedures and methods, auditing of contractor inspection services and reviewing proposed changes in process or materials. Risk based inspection and fitness for service analysis can also be performed.

Inspection of process equipment during fabrication is an important part of ensuring reliability. It is important to ensure that the fabricator is familiar with the fabrication of the component, especially for specialized equipment. The fabricator chosen should be thoroughly evaluated, this involves a shop inspection, welder and welding procedure qualification and a review of quality assurance requirements. It is wise to inspect and monitor the fabrication of the vessel to ensure compliance with specifications.
