You don't always require a company to conduct an inspection in accordance with API 653 its the certified inspector thats critical. You can find API 653 certified inspectors by going to www.api.org/icp and use the inspector database search. If this is for Russia and you want a company I know that Physical Acoustics has a tank inspection division and has offices in Russia. Also Rosen have done inspection in and around Russia and the former soviet union. Not aware of any other companies opertaing in Russia.

API 653 is an American Standard, in Europe the near equivalent is EMUA 159 and our tank inspector works to this.

a slight correction:

reference is made to a specification of EEMUA - Engineering Equipment and Materials Users' Association, London
EEMUA 159 is not a European Standard (EN).

EEMUA 159 - 2005
Users' Guide to the Inspection, Maintenance and Repair of Above Ground Vertical Cylindrical Steel Storage Tanks
This users' guide is considered to be the most comprehensive available on storage tank inspection, maintenance and repair. It offers guidance on the inspection and maintenance of tanks built to BS or API standards for the storage of petroleum and chemical feedstocks and products and refrigerated gases.
