ASME B31-Q Meeting Update

The Southern Gas Association (SGA) has posted an update on their website concerning the first meeting of the ASME B31-Q Committee. This committee is tasked with developing a technical standard concerning qualification of pipeline personnel. The resulting standard is expected to apply universally to all pipelines (not just those in the US). The pipeline industry anticipates that the Office of Pipeline Safety will adopt the standard into their regulations, once it is developed.
