Key Changes: Revision of the document will include: A complete reorganization of the document—quality requirements are now grouped by specific activity and not by PSL, making it easier to determine the specific requirements for all PSLs in one location and not spread throughout the document.
Uniformity in the layout of the product-specific section. A total revision of all of the sizing tables, including associated figures, to allow for clearer understanding of the requirements. The tables exist as a full set in SI metric units and as a separate, exact set in USC imperial units. Uniform use of product terms throughout the document. Addition of a new product proposed for monogramming , boarding shutdown valves, developed with support of the regulatory community.

Revised PSL 4 to target critical service equipment. Heat treatment requirements now normative. Removal of PR1 from design validation annex. Addition of pressure boundary qualification requirements.
