You may be required to comply with this standard if you intend to engage in welding activities involved in the construction and maintenance of carbon and carbon-manganese steel pipelines.
The multiple parts of this standard are intended for pipelines constructed from steel pipe used for the transport of gas or liquid petroleum. The standard also allows, under special circumstances, pipelines constructed from materials other than steel, and for application to fluids other than hydrocarbon fluids.
While compliance with this standard is not mandatory, it may be used to demonstrate that you have complied with your legal obligations.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information and to ascertain the level of compliance (if any) that may be required.
