PVS Working Group

The Pressure Vessels and Systems (PVS) Working Group’s purpose is to improve safety and reliability of PVS by sharing lessons learned, new information and processes; consulting and learning from each other; and keeping NASA-STD 8719.17, NASA Requirements for Ground-Based Pressure Vessels and Pressurized Systems (PVS) current. The PVS Working Group consists of the center Pressure Systems Managers and various other interested parties.

Policy and Guidance

NASA

NPD 8710.5 NASA Safety Policy for Pressure Vessels and Pressurized Systems

This NASA policy directive sets policy to manage risk to people, facilities and the environment posed by flight and ground-based Pressure Vessels and Pressurized Systems.

See NPD 8710.5
NASA-STD 8719.17 NASA Requirements for Ground-Based Pressure Vessels and Pressurized Systems (PVS)

The purpose of this document is to provide requirements that, if followed, will help to ensure safe, reliable operation of ground-based PVS through verification of their compliance with the higher level policy provided in NPD 8710.5, NASA Safety Policy for Pressure Vessels and Pressurized Systems, NPR 8715.3, NASA General Safety Program Requirements, applicable federal regulations, and national consensus codes and standards. 

See NASA-STD 8719.17

Occupational Safety and Health Administration

29 CFR 1910 Occupational Safety and Health Standard, General Industry

The occupational safety and health standards included in this portion of the Code of Federal Regulations. This part carries out the directive to the Secretary of Labor under section 6(a) of the Act. It contains occupational safety and health standards that have been found to be national consensus standards or established Federal standards.

See 29 CFR 1910
29 CFR 1960 Basic Program Elements for Federal Employee Occupational Safety and Health Programs

This part of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration regulations covers safety of federal employees by making applicable to them the general industry regulations found in 29 CFR 1910 and the construction regulations in 29 CFR 1926. Because most of the work of NASA, and particularly that related to pressure systems, is not related to construction, the general industry regulations have the greatest influence on us.
