Viewed 2849 Times


When materials in an existing field are replaced, what criteria should be used? Paragraph 8.2 of ISO 15156-1 provides some criteria for qualification, but it is not clear what approach should be used for materials that have been in use with no problems, but documentation does not exist.


NACE MR0175/ISO 15156-1 Paragraphs 6.2, 8.1, 8.2, and 9.0 provide a complete description of the documentation required for two years’ successful field service. Documentation has always been required.

This question is in relation to NACE MR0175/ISO 15156-1 Clause 8.2

Reference: ISO 15156 Maintenance Panel Inquiry #2003-41
