2.3 initial Certifcation review 2.3.1 introduction. Before the issuance or renewal of a Certifcate of Authorization, the organization is sub- ject to a review by an ASME survey team. 2.3.2 Purpose of the review. The purpose of the review is to evaluate the Applicant’s Quality Program and its implementation. The Applicant shall demon- strate suffcient administrative and fabrication func- tions of its Quality Program to show that the Applicant has knowledge and ability to produce the products (including services) covered by the Quality Program. Fabrication functions may be demonstrated using the current work, a mock-up, or a combination of the two. If there is current Code work in-house at the time of the survey, it shall be included as part of the demonstration item used for the certifcation review.
