Although Risk Based Inspection is well recognised as a good practice it has not been adopted by every country in the world. Brazil in particular has its own Regulatory Standard known as NR13 which it uses to set out some minimum time-based safety standards for the management and inspection of steam boilers, pressure vessels, some metal storage tanks and their interconnecting pipes. Hopefully the adoption of Risk Based Inspection is not far away.
