This specification defines requirements for the data used in the tracking and traceability base-62 encoding system. It provides the format of the resultant code to characterize various components used in fuel gas piping systems. In this specification, the final output is a 16 digit alpha-numeric code that defines a standardized approach or methodology for encoding certain characteristics of components that have been established based on consensus recommendations from the respective stakeholder group members. The gas distribution component traceability identifier is also provided in this specification wherein the gas distribution component traceability identifier shall be comprised of sixteen alphanumeric characters that specify respective attributes for a given component. The gas distribution component traceability identifiers also include identifications of component manufacturer, identification of component manufacturer's lot code, the component production date, the component material, the component size, and the component type.
This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.
1.1 This specification defines requirements for the data used in the tracking and traceability base-62 encoding system and the format of the resultant code to characterize various components used in fuel gas piping systems.
1.2 The final output of this specification is a 16 digit alpha-numeric code that defines a standardized approach or methodology for encoding certain characteristics of components that have been established based on consensus recommendations from the respective stakeholder group members. The means of marking or affixing the code to the components, and the means of reading and/or transferring the data or codes are outside the scope of this specification.
Note 1: To facilitate compliance with this specification, a web based application has been developed to manage and maintain unique manufacturer identification numbers. The URL for the website is: http://www.componentid.org.
Note 2: Meters and regulators are excluded from this specification because traceability marking requirements for these products are defined in ANSI B109.1–B109.4.
1.3 The web based application is only intended to serve as a useful resource for managing the respective manufacturer identification numbers, codes, and other identifiers as per this specification. Any changes to the contents of the web based application are contingent upon subsequent changes to this specification. This specification shall have primacy.
