The “Pressure Piping Construction Requirements” document, AB-518 has been issued by the Alberta pressure equipment safety Administrator to specify requirements for the construction of pressure piping systems. In accordance with the requirements of PESR Section 11(1), anyone who wants to construct pressure piping systems in Alberta is required to obtain a Certificate of Authorization Permit from ABSA.


This checklist AB-518b has been developed to assist the applicants and ABSA auditors review the written description of the QMS and verify if it meets the requirements of the AB-518 document and the legislation.
Organizations who wish to make an application for obtaining a Certificate of Authorization Permit in accordance with the requirements of the Pressure equipment Safety Regulation Section 11, shall submit the following documents to ABSA:

  • an Application Form AB-29,

  • an AB-29b Form if applying for multiple shop locations to be certified under the same AQP number (all shops must operate under the same name),

  • a copy of the duly endorsed AB-518(b) document showing where each requirement of the AB-518 document has been addressed in the company’s QMS, and,

  • a draft copy of the written description of the QMS describing the pressure piping construction activity.

Owner/Users who are also authorized to construct pressure piping are required to review their pressure equipment integrity management system documentation and ensure that pressure piping construction activity meets the requirements of AB-518. Owner/Users are not required to submit AB-518b.

Quality Manual Requirements




Title Page






Is there a Title Page?
Section 3.3 does not include requirements for the ‘Title Page’ of the written description of a QMS or a manual because it is not a document organizing guide. AB-518 stipulates requirements that must be addressed in a QMS. Inclusion of a Title Page to any credible document is common knowledge, however guidelines for developing a written description of a QMS including a ‘Title Page’ are described in ISIO10013:2001 standard.

Table of Contents

Is there a Table of Contents that lists the number and title of each section and its location in the written description of the QMS?
