Codes & Standards for Safety
The piping industry exists to carry liquid and gas materials from one place to another for use, storage or disposal. These materials are vital to life and health, and the methods used in construction and maintenance of these systems are governed by laws, which are either based in or specifically refer to particular nationally accepted codes and standards. Without these standards the health and safety of entire communities would be in jeopardy. Codes require consistency and sound methods of installation; they form the governing statutes of the construction world.
P.I.P.E. participates in every code and standards organization, and in every association which could affect standards in the piping industry. These standards maintain public safety, the quality of work and the integrity of the industry as a whole. We do not merely sign on, but take an active role on committees and in conferences; our goal is to monitor and shape the installation practices, tools and methods governed by these codes and standards.
Please check this section in the future for updates on key issues and developments in codes and standards.
