Part 1 of ISO 14692 defines the applications, pressure rating methodology, the classification of the products according to application, type of joint and resin matrix and the limitations to both the materials of construction and the dimensions. It also lists the terms, definitions and symbols used and provides guidance in the use and interpretation of the other Parts of ISO 14692, namely Parts 2, 3 and 4.
ISO 14692 (all parts) is applicable to GRP piping systems that 1) utilize joints that are capable of restraining
axial thrust from internal pressure, temperature change and fluid hydrodynamic forces and 2) have a
trapezoidal shape for its design envelope. It is primarily intended for offshore applications on both fixed and
floating topsides facilities, but it may also be used for the specification, manufacture, testing and installation of GRP piping systems in other similar applications found onshore, e.g. produced-water, firewater systems and
general industrial use.
