ANSI/ASME B31.3-2010

Process Piping

This standard was published by ASME in March 2011. It has 400 pages.

Rules for piping typically found in petroleum refineries; chemical, pharmaceutical, textile, paper, semiconductor, and cryogenic plants; and related processing plants and terminals. This code prescribes requirements for materials and components, design, fabrication, assembly, erection, examination, inspection, and testing of piping. This Code applies to piping for all fluids including:
(1) raw, intermediate, and finished chemicals;
(2) petroleum products;
(3) gas, steam, air and water;
(4) fluidized solids;
(5) refrigerants; and
(6) cryogenic fluids.

Also included is piping which interconnects pieces or stages within a packaged equipment assembly.

GAMP Good Practice Guide: A Risk-Based Approach to GxP Process Control

This is the 2nd edition of GAMP Good Practice Guide, that was published in 2011 by International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering. It has 196 pages and ISBN 9781936379057.
This GAMPĀ® Good Practice Guide: A Risk-Based Approach to GxP Process Control Systems is a revision of the GAMPĀ® Good Practice Guide: Validation of Process Control Systems. It provides guidance and examples on the application of the principles and framework of GAMP 5: A Risk-Based Approach to Compliant GxP Computerized Systems to a wide range of systems, from basic instruments to large, complex, distributed control systems.

This Guide aims to achieve process control systems that are fit for intended use and compliant with applicable regulations; providing recommended good practice based on a life cycle approach for the development, maintenance, and management of process control systems.

The Guide applies science-based Quality Risk Management, as described in ICH Q9 and GAMP 5. It describes the system life cycle from concept to retirement, providing a high level overview of the approach together with guidance on how activities might be scaled based on risk to product quality, system novelty, and complexity as well as other project specific factors.

NSF/ANSI 46-2010a

Evaluation of components and devices used in wastewater treatment systems

The purpose of this Standard is to establish minimum materials, design and construction, and performance requirements for components and devices used in the handling, treating, recycling, reusing, or disposal of wastewater. This Standard is intended to protect public health and the environment as well as to minimize nuisance factors.

This Standard is intended for use with components and devices not covered by other NSF wastewater standards. Components and devices covered by this Standard are intended for use with greywater or blackwater or both. Management methods for the end-products of these components and devices are not addressed in this Standard. This Standard shall in no way restrict new system designs, provided that such designs meet the minimum specifications described herein.

All devices and components meeting the scope of this Standard shall comply with all of the requirements described in 1 through 8. In addition, devices and components shall comply with the applicable subsequent section(s) contained in this Standard. Where subsequent sections of the Standard include requirements that overlap with those found in 1 through 8, the requirements of both sections shall be met unless otherwise specified in the requirements of the subsequent section.

ANSI/ASHRAE 154-2011

Standard 154-2011 — Ventilation for Commercial Cooking Operations (ANSI Approved)

ASHRAE Standing Standard Project Committee 154

First published in 2003, ASHRAE Standard 154 has been thoroughly revised in this edition to make it code enforceable and to provide the most complete design guidance available on commercial kitchen ventilation components and systems. This standard now serves as a template for standardization, harmonization, and ongoing revision of related model and adopted codes and to bring consistency to design requirements and applications of commercial kitchen ventilation systems.
