Note how API 650 was preceded by the older code API 12C. In the most recent edition of API 653 it is clear that API are keen to recognize other tank construction codes, as well as API 650. This explains the use of the generic term ‘as-built standard’ instead of assuming that all tanks have to be built to API 650. 4 API 653 definitions of major repairs (MR) and major alterations (MA) 20 An Introduction to API 653: 2009 and its Related Codes separate construction code editions, one for the original construction and one for the re-rating, each time it is repaired or altered.

Note this difference to other API codes: . API 653 is noticeably different to API 510 (vessels) and 570 (pipework) in that it does not spend lots of time trying to list the numerous responsibilities of the authorized inspector. This may be because API are trying to make their codes more relevant to non-US situations where the responsibilities are different. Instead, API 653 concentrates much more on the technical aspects of tank inspections. This is good news, because this is what codes are supposed to be for.
