This recommended practice (RP) covers the process of specifying the necessary quality surveillance of materials, equipment, and fabrications being supplied for use in the oil, petrochemical, and gas Industry, including upstream, midstream, and downstream segments. This RP may be used as the basis for providing a systematic approach to risk-based source inspection to provide confdence that materials and equipment being purchased meet the minimum requirements as specifed in the project documents and contractual agreements. The activities outlined in this RP are not intended to replace the manufacturer’s/fabricator’s own quality systems, but rather are meant to guide SIs acting on behalf of the purchaser to determine whether manufacturer’s/fabricator’s own quality systems have functioned appropriately, such that the purchased equipment and materials will meet contractual agreements. This RP focuses primarily on pressure-containing and structural equipment (fxed equipment), including but not limited to vessels, columns/towers, heat exchangers, piping, valves, pressure-relief devices, tubulars, and supporting structural fabrications. The principles of the document can be applied to other equipment disciplines. This document assumes that suppliers/vendors (S/V) have been pre-qualifed by a systematic quality review process of their facilities and quality processes to determine if the facility has the ability to meet the requirements of the contractual agreements. That process generally leads to a list of pre-approved S/Vs deemed acceptable to the supply chain management of the purchaser who are capable of meeting the requirements of the contract prior to it being placed. S/Vs on such a list will normally have an acceptable quality process already in place that meets the requirements of the contract. An approved S/V list may also indicate that S/Vs have the technical skills and can meet the SCM commercial terms and conditions. 3 Normative References The most recent editions of these codes, standards, or other recommended practices are referenced in this RP and are the documents from which the SI exam has been developed.

4.23 employer The corporate, public, or private entity that employs personnel for wages, salaries, fees, or other considerations, e.g. the employer of the source inspector. 4.24 engineered equipment Equipment that is custom designed and engineered by the purchaser and/or EPC to perform a project-specifc function. Engineered equipment will typically require more source inspection than non-engineered equipment. 4.25 EPC Engineering/procurement/construction contractor. 4.26 examiner A person who performs specifed nondestructive examination (NDE) on components and evaluates the results to the applicable acceptance criteria to assess the quality of the component. Typically, NDE examiners (sometimes called NDE technicians) are qualifed to ASNT NDE personnel qualifcation practices, e.g. SNT-TC-IA or CP-189. 4.27 ferrous materials Alloys that are iron-based, including stainless steels. 4.28 HAZ Heat affected zone: the thin base metal area next to the weld that has had its metal structure affected by the heat of welding. 4.29 hot working Plastic deformation (forming, rolling, forging, etc.) of metals at a temperature above the metal recrystallization temperature. 4.30 ICP Individual Certifcation Program (of API) under which the SI certifcation program is administered. 4.31 inspection The evaluation of a component or equipment for compliance with a specifc product specifcation, code, drawing, and/or standard specifed in the contractual requirements, that may include the measuring, testing, or gauging of one or more characteristics specifed for the product to determine conformity.
