Korea Gas Safety (KGS)
HSB leverages its Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code knowledge and experience to provide inspection and engineering services related to most major boiler and pressure vessels codes. Korea generally accepts ASME Code equipment. However, they require a Manufacturer's Approval (license) issued by the Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Energy (MOCIE).
There are different regulatory bodies depending on the equipment's application which makes it necessary for the manufacturer to contact the end client in Korea to obtain the name of the appropriate regulatory body and any requirements that are supplemental to the ASME Code.
For more detailed information on the specific requirements relating to requirements in Korea, visit our International Import Requirements database.
