PURPOSE AND USE OF PROCESS INDUSTRY PRACTICES

rC

om

m
er

In an effort to minimize the cost of process industry facilities, this Practice has been
prepared from the technical requirements in the existing standards of major industrial users,
contractors, or standards organizations. By harmonizing these technical requirements into a single
set of Practices, administrative, application, and engineering costs to both the purchaser and the
manufacturer should be reduced. While this Practice is expected to incorporate the majority of
requirements of most users, individual applications may involve requirements that will be
appended to and take precedence over this Practice. Determinations concerning fitness for purpose
and particular matters or application of the Practice to particular project or engineering situations
should not be made solely on information contained in these materials. The use of trade names
from time to time should not be viewed as an expression of preference but rather recognized as
normal usage in the trade. Other brands having the same specifications are equally correct and may
be substituted for those named. All Practices or guidelines are intended to be consistent with
applicable laws and regulations including OSHA requirements. To the extent these Practices or
guidelines should conflict with OSHA or other applicable laws or regulations, such laws or
regulations must be followed. Consult an appropriate professional before applying or acting on any
material contained in or suggested by the Practice.

U
se

1.2

This Practice establishes the definitions and interpretations for all pipeline-related
abbreviations and acronyms used in Pipeline Systems Practices.
Abbreviations for technical societies, codes, standards, etc. are not included.

Requirements

The abbreviations listed in this Practice are uniquely pipeline-related and shall be used in
pipeline Practices without further definition in those Practices.

2.2

Abbreviations not listed shall be spelled out or defined in a pipeline Practice in which
the abbreviations are used.

2.3

Other interpretations of the abbreviations defined in this Practice shall not be applicable
to PIP pipeline Practices.
