ADDENDA
Colored-sheet Addenda, which include additions and revisions to individual Sections of the Code, are
published annually and will be sent automatically to purchasers of the applicable Sections up to the
publication of the 2004 Code. The 2001 Code is available only in the loose-leaf format; accordingly, the
Addenda will be issued in the loose-leaf, replacement-page format.

INTERPRETATIONS
ASME issues written replies to inquiries concerning interpretation of technical aspects of the Code. The
Interpretations for each individual Section will be published separately and will be included as part of
the update service to that Section. They will be issued semiannually (July and December) up to the
publication of the 2004 Code. Interpretations of Section III, Divisions 1 and 2, will be included with the
update service to Subsection NCA.

CODE CASES
The Boiler and Pressure Vessel Committee meets regularly to consider proposed additions and revisions
to the Code and to formulate Cases to clarify the intent of existing requirements or provide, when the
need is urgent, rules for materials or constructions not covered by existing Code rules. Those Cases which
have been adopted will appear in the appropriate 2001 Code Cases book: (1) Boilers and Pressure Vessels
and (2) Nuclear Components. Supplements will be sent automatically to the purchasers of the Code Cases
books up to the publication of the 2004 Code.

NOTES TO NUMERIC INDEX

T Code Cases automatically expire three years after their approval date unless reaffirmed,
revised, or annulled, or an earlier expiration date is specified. When a Case is revised,
a new expiration is scheduled.

T Cases may be used beginning with the date of approval shown on the Case.

T Cases which are reaffirmed without change are not reprinted in Supplements. The
Numeric Index provides the reaffirmation date and new expiration date of reaffirmed
Cases.

T Annulled Cases will remain in the Numeric Index until the next Edition, at which
time they will be deleted.

T The digit following a Case Number is used to indicate the number of times a Case
has been revised.

T The Cases are arranged in numerical order, and each page of a Case is identified
at the top with the appropriate Case Number.
