Enterprise-Control System Integration Part 5: Business-to-Manufacturing Transactions

Published by: The International Society of Automation / 07/08/2013 / 180 pages
This ISA-5 Part 5 standard defines transactions in terms of information exchanges between applications performing business and manufacturing activities between Levels 3 and 4, and within Level 3. The exchanges are intended to enable information collection, retrieval, transfer and storage in support of enterprise-control system integration. This Part 5 is consistent with the ISA-95 Part 2 and Part 4 object models. This Part 5 also defines transactions that specify how to exchange the objects defined in Part 2, Part 4, and this Part 5. Other uses of the transaction model are not defined in this Part 5 standard.

API RP 1160

Managing System Integrity for Hazardous Liquid Pipelines, Second Edition, Includes Errata (2013)

Published by: American Petroleum Institute / 09/01/2013 / 99 pages / 2nd Edition
This recommended practice (RP) is applicable to pipeline systems used to transport “hazardous liquids” as defined in U.S. Title 49 CFR Part 195.2. The use of this RP is not limited to pipelines regulated under 49 CFR 195, and the principles embodied in integrity management are applicable to all pipeline systems.

This RP is specifically designed to provide the operator with a description of industry-proven practices in pipeline integrity management. The guidance is largely targeted to the line pipe along the right-of-way, but the process and approach can be applied to pipeline facilities, including pipeline stations, terminals, and delivery facilities associated with pipeline systems. Certain sections of this RP provide guidance specific to pipeline stations, terminals, and delivery facilities.

This recommended practice (RP) outlines a process that an operator of a pipeline system can use to assess risks and make decisions about risks in operating a hazardous liquid pipeline in order to achieve a number of goals, including reducing both the number and consequences of incidents. The document includes a description of an integrity management program that forms the basis of the RP. The RP also supports the development of integrity management programs required under 49 CFR 195.452 of the U.S. federal pipeline safety regulations.

This RP is intended for use by individuals and teams charged with planning, implementing, and improving a pipeline integrity management program.

Controlled Environments (Aerospace, Non-cleanroom)

Published by: Institute of Environmental Sciences and Technology / 2013 / 16 pages
This Recommended Practice (RP) provides non-cleanroom contamination control criteria to support successful performance of products and associated subassemblies, targeted for suppliers of aerospace products. The criteria discussed are intended to assist manufacturers in implementing production methods and process controls, including minimum facility environmental controls, not including room airborne particle fallout quantification. This includes production operations from piece-part acquisition through delivery of the final product. This RP is not associated with cleanroom requirements or related documentation.

BHMA 2013 Certified Products Directory

Published by: Builders Hardware Manufacturers Association / 2013 / 466 pages
For more information about certifying your products and a link to the full BHMA Certification ‘Program Manual’ and license agreement, click Here.

The Builders Hardware Manufacturers Association (BHMA) Certification Program was developed as a
means for producers of builders hardware to indicate compliance with American National Standards
sponsored by BHMA. Participating manufacturers certify compliance with the standards based on a
continuing program of passing the prescribed tests. The sponsored American National Standards listed in
this directory are performance oriented standards having cycle, functional, strength, security, and finish
test requirements. Third party testing is performed by a Nationally Recognized Test Laboratory. The
program is open to all manufacturers of builders hardware whether or not they are members of BHMA.

The directory of Certified products is printed once a year, each edition superceding the previous edition.
The effective date is displayed on the cover. Updates, which may be required during the year in the event
additional products are certified, any listed products are decertified, or new licensees enter the program,
are shown on the BHMA website only (www.buildershardware.com).

A system of type number descriptions is provided in the Standards for each product. For convenience, a
brief summary of the types is provided in this directory. Listees are permitted to certify models which are
slightly different than the published types, provided they describe the features in the directory, and the
model meets all other applicable requirements of the standard.

CSA W59-13

Welded Steel Construction (Metal Arc Welding)

Published by: CSA Group / 10/01/2013 / 456 pages / 9th Edition


This is the ninth edition of CSA W59, Welded steel construction (metal arc welding). It supersedes the previous editions published in 2003, 1989, 1984, 1982, 1977, 1970, 1946, and 1940.


This Standard covers welding requirements for carbon and low-alloy welded steel construction, with the exception of those types listed in Clause 1.2.

Requirements that are essentially common to all such structures are covered in Clauses 3 to 10, while provisions applying specifically to statically-loaded structures and to cyclically-loaded structures are included in Clauses 11 and 12, respectively.

This Standard is not intended to apply to pressure vessels or to structures governed by special codes such as those of the American Petroleum Institute, the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, or the American Water Works Association.

This Standard includes provisions for the following:
(a) shielded metal arc welding (SMAW);
(b) submerged arc welding (SAW);
(c) gas metal arc welding (GMAW);
(d) gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW);
(e) flux-cored arc welding (FCAW);
(f) metal-cored arc welding (MCAW);
(g) electroslag welding (ESW);
(h) electrogas welding (EGW); and
(i) stud welding (SW) processes.

The provisions of this Standard are not intended for use with steels having a specified minimum yield strength over 700 MPa (100 000 psi).

This Standard applies to the welding of base metals 3 mm (1/8 in) and thicker. In cases where base metals less than 3 mm (1/8 in) thick are to be welded to base metals 3 mm (1/8 in) and thicker, the requirements of AWS D1.3/AWS D1.3M and this Standard apply. In the case of any conflict between AWS D1.3/AWS D1.3M and this Standard, the requirements of this Standard govern.

Note: In cases where base metals less than 3 mm (1/8 in) thick are to be welded to base metals less than 3 mm (1/8 in), the requirements of AWS D1.3/AWS D1.3M may be appropriate.

This Standard does not address safety problems associated with welding and welding practices.

Note: CSA W117.2 addresses safety in welding, cutting, and allied processes, and should be followed in addition to any applicable workplace health and safety legislation in effect. It is the responsibility of the user of this Standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and to determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

This Standard does not address the welding of stainless steels. For welding of stainless steel, the provisions of AWS D1.6/AWS D1.6M may be used for the design of welded connections, prequalification, fabrication, and inspection.

Note: See CSA W47.1 for guidance related to the qualification of welding personnel and welding procedures for stainless steel.

This Standard does not address underwater welding activities.

The values given in SI units are the units of record for the purposes of this Standard. The values given in parentheses are for information and comparison only.

In this Standard, “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 (non-mandatory) to define their application.
