This Revised Standard/Technical Publication is effective upon the date of publication and supersedes all previous revisions of the Standard/Technical Publication and API MPMS 11.2.2A/GPA TP-15. However, due to the nature of the changes in this Revised Standard/Technical Publication and the fact that it is or may be incorporated by reference in various regulations, it is recognized that guidance concerning an implementation period may be needed in order to avoid disruptions within the industry and ensure proper application. As a result, it is recommended that this Revised Standard/Technical Publication be utilized on all new and existing applications no later than TWO YEARS after the publication date. An application, for this purpose, is defined as the point where the calculation is applied.
Once the Revised Standard/Technical Publication is implemented in a particular application, the Previous Standard/Technical Publication will no longer be used in that application.
However, the use of API standards and ASTM and GPA technical publications remains voluntary and the decision on when to utilize a standard/technical publication is an issue that is subject to the negotiations between the parties involved in the transaction.
