ASME issues pipeline standards compendium.

ASME has published a pipeline standards compendium designed to link relevant technical documents to passages in the U.S. pipeline safety regulations.

Within the United States, federal regulations governing pipelines are administered by the U.S. Department of Transportation's Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration. The federal agency relies on numerous private-sector standards and guidance documents--including those developed by ASME--to establish a robust and relevant technical basis for its regulations.

The new compendium is intended to facilitate an understanding of the relationship between the regulations and the ASME standards. The compendium has been organized to aid users of the pipeline safety regulations promulgated by Parts 192,193, and 195 of Title 49 of the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations. It identifies the ASME standards relevant to the regulatory language, describes each referenced ASME standard in plain language, and also provides relevant technical excerpts.

The compendium, which will remain a copyrighted work of ASME, is available as a free digital product in ASME's online catalog at
