This document specifies an encoding system for data of components, assembly methods and jointing operations for polyethylene (PE) piping systems for gas, water and other industrial applications. These data can be used in a traceability system and/or used to perform the fusion of components by using equipment as specified in ISOÂ 12176â1 and in ISOÂ 12176â2.
This encoding system is explained in ISO/IECÂ 16022, ISO/IECÂ 18004 and ISO/IECÂ 24778 which refer to established code types, e.g. QR code.
Data to be encoded are: fusion cycle(s), traceability of manufactured products, other manufacturerâs information that can also be given on websites such as voluntary certificates of quality and approvals.
This document specifies the export of data (type, format and sequence) from a data retrieval system.
Provisions of this document are applicable to polyethylene components conforming to ISOÂ 4427â2, ISOÂ 4427â3, ISOÂ 4437â2, ISOÂ 4437â3, ISOÂ 4437â4 and ISOÂ 15494, and can also be applicable to any other components used in PE systems.
ISOÂ 13950 and ISOÂ 12176â4, which partly cover the fields of application of this document, can be used in parallel.
