ASME SA 435 vs SA 578

Dear Specialists,
ASME SA 435 and SA 578 code requires straigth beam examination of carbon steel plates greater than 12mm. SA 435 and SA 578 Level B hvae the same acceptance criteria.
If a plate has been inspected in acc. with SA 578 Level B, and the code requires SA 435 inspection. Is there any Code interpretetion or experience with ASME Code work?

Re: ASME SA 435 vs SA 578
Mr. Gonulal,
the acceptance criteria are not the same. In A-578 level B there is an additional requirement for interaction of smaller discontinuities. (See ASTM A-578 item 8.2)

Thanks for response Mr. Richter,
Then we can say that SA578 Level B is more restricted than SA435. So, if the plate is ispected in acc. with SA 578 B, does it need to be checked by SA 435?
