What is Piping Code's and Standards ?
Piping codes and standards are the main pillars of any piping industry. As, the integrity of the piping system depends upon the considerations and principles used for designing, construction, inspection, and maintenance of the system. In practice, the assurance that the design and construction of a piping system will meet safety requirements is achieved through the use of published engineering codes and standards.

Codes v/s Standards
  • Piping Codes defines the requirement of design, fabrication, use of materials, tests and inspection of pipes and piping systems.
  • Piping standards define application design and construction rules and requirements for piping components as flanges, elbows, tees, valves etc.

Organizations for Piping Codes
  • ASME - American Society of Mechanical Engineers , one of the leading organizations in the world developing codes and standards .
  • ANSI - American National Standards Institute, provides a forum for development of American national standards.
  • DIN - Deutsches Institut fur Normung (Germany)
  • ISO - International organization for Standardization.
