As stated in API 5L (46 th Edition),, MTR inspection documents can be provided in an electronic form through an electronic data interchange (EDI) that conforms to any EDI agreement between the purchaser and the manufacturer. An EDI agreement could include the use of a published EDI standard, such as ASC X12. Data transferred through EDI in accordance with a published standard, such as ASC X12, is considered to be a legal and authenticated document that could eliminate the need for a complementary paper MTR inspection document. Purchasers and manufactures may also agree to the use of other electronic data interchange methods, but the legality, security, and authentication of the data interchange method should be considered. For example, complementary MTRs commonly include a quality statement and the signature of a manufacturer’s representative. Quality statements and signatures are not required in API 5L (46 th Edition),, but may be required by the manufacturer and/or purchaser. Specialized software may be required to provide a signature or similar authentication functionality for an MTR inspection document if the electronic record is not accompanied by a paper document. API 5L (46 th Edition),, which provides the minimum MTR inspection document data elements, also includes a line item for “the results of any supplementary testing specifed in the purchase order.” This standard provides format and content recommendations for commonly requested supplementary tests. This standard also provides a supplementary and optional method for complying with API 5L (46 th Edition) 11.2, which requires pipe to be marked with “an identifcation number (Z), which permits the correlation of the product or delivery unit (e.g. bundled pipe) with the related inspection document, if applicable.” Pipe is commonly marked with a heat number. However, a heat number may not be adequate to link a product or delivery unit to its related inspection document. This standard is for carbon and low-alloy steel pipe and components used in the compression, pumping, and transmission of crude petroleum, petroleum products, fuel gases, carbon dioxide, nitrogen, and, where applicable, covers distribution systems. This standard applies to new assets and does not retroactively apply to in-service assets. This standard provides a method for the electronic exchange of MTR inspection documents from manufacturer to purchaser to support enhanced material traceability and records for steel line pipe, and could be applied to related steel assets. Data models for each asset type/product are provided in separate annexes; annexes for new asset types will be incrementally added to this standard as necessary. The users of this standard are purchasers (operators and distributors) and manufacturers, and it is intended that all work performed in accordance with this standard either meets or exceeds its requirements. The values stated in either U.S. Customary Units (USC) or metric units (SI) are to be regarded separately as standard. Each system is intended to be used independently of the other, without combining values in any way. While this standard is comprehensive, it may not address all issues that may arise. The absence of guidance or requirements is not to be considered prohibitive to a particular activity or approach that is based upon sound engineering judgment. For example, other industry standards, reliable engineering tests and analyses, or other established industry practices may serve as useful references to establish sound engineering judgment.
