4.11 BPVC Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code (published by ASME). 4.12 causal analysis A generic term for all types of investigative processes—from as simple as a 5-Why analysis to a full root cause analysis. 4.13 certifcation Documented and signed testimony of qualifcation. Certifcation generally refers to the confrmation of certain, specifed characteristics of a product or confrmation of a person meeting requirements for a specifc qualifcation. 4.14 calibration A comparison between measurements—one of known magnitude or correctness (the standard) compared with the measuring device under test to establish the accuracy of a measuring device. 4.15 cladding A metal integrally bonded onto another metal (e.g. plate), under high pressure and temperature, whose properties are better suited to resist damage from the process fuids than the underlying base metal. 4.16 cold working Plastic deformation (forming, rolling, forging, etc.) of metals below the recrystallization temperature of the metal. 4.17 continuity log A document detailing the continuous history of a welder, the types of welds made, and that there has been no gap (i.e. no more than six months) in performing these processes. 4.18 critical equipment Equipment that has been risk assessed and determined that, if it were to fail in service, it would have an unacceptable impact on process safety, environment, or business needs, and therefore deserves a higher level of source inspection attention to make sure the equipment being delivered is exactly as specifed. 4.19 destructive testing Various tests that are performed on metals for the purposes of determining mechanical properties and that involve testing (usually breaking) of sample coupons. Examples include tensile testing, bend testing, and Charpy impact testing. A destructive-testing work process involves extracting samples/coupons from components and testing for characteristics that cannot otherwise be determined by nondestructive testing.
4.22 elevation The height of any point on a vessel as shown on a vessel drawing, e.g. nozzle, manway, or longitudinal weld, as measured from a base plate or other reference line, such as the bottom head tangent line. 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. 4.32 inspection agency An entity employed to provide competent, qualifed, and certifed source inspection personnel for the purpose of performing source inspection.
4.33 inspection coordinator Individual who is responsible for the development of the source inspection strategy, coordination of the source inspection visits, and implementation of the source inspection activities on a project. 4.34 inspection waiver Permission to proceed with production/shipment without having a purchaser source inspection representative present for a specifc activity. 4.35 ITP Inspection and test plan: a plan that summarizes minimum inspection, testing, and quality control requirements for a defned scope of work.
