CIE S 021/E:2011

Vehicle Headlighting Systems Photometric Performance – Method of Assessment

Published by Commission Internationale de L’Eclairage in May 2011

This Standard specifies a method to consistently assess the photometric performance of vehicle headlighting systems to enable the performance of different systems to be compared. The requirements are given in relation to road scene illumination and the limitation of glare, and the performance is assessed using parameters relevant to lane guidance and the detection of pedestrians and objects.

The Standard includes a measurement and calculation procedure. It does not specify the format of an assessment report.

ISBN: 9781936379071
The new ISPE Good Practice Guide (GPG): Cold Chain Management covers a wide range of topics, including facilities, fixed cold rooms and freezers, temperature controlled shipping equipment, as well as guidance on mapping and monitoring, featuring practical technical guidance in all these areas, as well as addressing maintenance and cleaning with a section covering product traceability. Cold Chain is an area with increasing challenges to manufacturers, as the volume of products requiring controlled temperatures and the complexity of the supply chain for those products increase. The GPG will provide practical guidance and examples of typical documents in the area of cold chain management.

NSF/ANSI 336 – 2011

Sustainability Assessment for Commercial Furnishings Fabric

Published by NSF International in March 2011 (78 pages)
This Standard provides pathways toward sustainability by establishing measurable criteria for multiple levels of achievement. It allows manufacturers flexibility in methods for conformance and certification. This Standard assesses product characteristics in the areas of material and component inputs, water and energy use, recycling practices and social accountability. This version of the Standard does not include specific criteria for calculating carbon footprint nor does it cover transportation.

This Standard is applicable to commercial fabrics commonly used in public occupancy settings, such as office, hospitality, healthcare, and institutional interiors. These include but are not limited to upholstery, vertical fabric (furniture system, wall, drapery, and cubicle), and top of the bed fabrics. Fabrics may be formed by combining yarns, fibers, or filaments in a variety of ways including but not limited to woven, non-woven, knitted, bonded, felted, and composite materials. This Standard is applicable to fabrics manufactured in one or multiple facilities, in one or multiple countries.

Consists of Z662-11, Oil and gas pipeline systems and Z662.1-11, Commentary on CSA Z662-11, Oil and gas pipeline systems

6th Edition, published in July 2011

This is the sixth edition of CSA Z662, Oil and gas pipeline systems. It supersedes the previous editions published in 2007, 2003, 1999, 1996, and 1994.

1.1 This Standard covers the design, construction, operation, and maintenance of oil and gas industry pipeline systems that convey (a) liquid hydrocarbons, including crude oil, multiphase fluids, condensate, liquid petroleum products, natural gas liquids, and liquefied petroleum gas; (b) oilfield water; (c) oilfield steam; (d) carbon dioxide used in oilfield enhanced recovery schemes; or (e) gas. Note: Designers are cautioned that the requirements in this Standard might not be appropriate for gases other than natural gas, manufactured gas, or synthetic natural gas.

1.2 The scope of this Standard, as shown in Figures 1.1 and 1.2, includes (a) for oil industry fluids, piping and equipment in offshore pipelines, onshore pipelines, tank farms, pump stations, pressure-regulating stations, and measuring stations; (b) oil pump stations, pipeline tank farms, and pipeline terminals; (c) pipe-type storage vessels; (d) for carbon dioxide pipeline systems, piping and equipment in onshore pipelines, pressure-regulating stations, and measuring stations; (e) for gas industry fluids, piping and equipment in offshore pipelines, onshore pipelines, compressor stations, measuring stations, and pressure-regulating stations; (f) gas compressor stations; and (g) gas storage lines and pipe-type and bottle-type gas storage vessels.

1.3 This Standard does not apply to (a) piping with metal temperatures below -70 °C; (b) piping (except oilfield steam distribution piping) with metal temperatures above 230 °C; (c) gas piping beyond the outlet of the customer’s meter set assembly (covered by CAN/CSA-B149.1); (d) piping in natural gas liquids extraction plants, gas processing plants (except main gas stream piping in dehydration and all other processing plants installed as part of gas pipeline systems), gas manufacturing plants, industrial plants, and mines; (e) oil refineries, terminals other than pipeline terminals, and marketing bulk plants; (f) abandoned piping; (g) in-plant piping for drinking, make-up, or boiler feed water; (h) casing, tubing, or pipe in oil or gas wells, wellheads, separators, production tanks, and other production facilities; (i) vent piping for waste gases of any kind operating at or near atmospheric pressure; (j) heat exchangers; (k) liquefied natural gas systems (covered by CSA Z276); (l) liquid fuel distribution systems; (m) loading/unloading facilities for tankers or barges; (n) refuelling facilities; and (o) hydrocarbon storage in underground formations and associated equipment (covered by CSA Z341 Series).

1.4 This Standard is intended to establish essential requirements and minimum standards for the design, construction, operation, and maintenance of oil and gas industry pipeline systems. This Standard is not a design handbook, and competent engineering judgment should be employed with its use. Note: For steel pipe of grade higher than Grade 555, requirements in addition to those specified in this Standard might be needed. Matters that should be considered include joining, thermal aging effects during coating application, strain capacity (including cold bending), pressure testing, assessment of imperfections, and repair.

1.5 The requirements of this Standard are applicable to the operation, maintenance, and upgrading of existing installations; however, it is not intended that such requirements be applied retroactively to existing installations insofar as design, materials, construction, and established operating pressures are concerned.

1.6 Unless otherwise stated, to determine conformance with the specified requirements, it is intended that observed or calculated values be rounded to the nearest unit in the last right-hand place of figures used in expressing the limiting value, in accordance with the rounding method of ASTM E29.

1.7 Where any requirements of this Standard are at variance with the requirements of other publications referenced in this Standard, it is intended that the requirements of this Standard govern.

1.8 It is not the intent of this Standard to prevent the development of new equipment or practices, or to prescribe how such innovations are to be handled.

1.9 In CSA standards, “shall” is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user is obliged to satisfy in order to comply with the standard; “should” is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; and “may” is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the standard. Notes accompanying clauses do not include requirements or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a clause is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material. Notes to tables and figures are considered part of the table or figure and may be written as requirements. Annexes are designated normative (mandatory) or informative (nonmandatory) to define their application.
