ASTM WK46408

    Revision of F1545 - 97(2009) Standard Specification for Plastic-Lined Ferrous Metal Pipe, Fittings, and Flanges

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: F1545 - 15a

    Developed by Subcommittee: F17.11 | Committee F17 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    This work item seeks to strengthen and clarify the qualification test requirements of the standard. Section 5.5.1 does not use commonly recognized shall/should verbiage nor make clear that all (4) qualification type tests are required. A non-mandatory note proposed for section 5.5.1 sets a record retention expectation. Section 9 currently does not explicitly mention qualification testing as a pre-requisite for applying the ASTM F1545 mark. The lack of clarity in the current language could lead to misunderstanding, effectively undermining the intent of the standard.
