Chi Lee from TWI’s Asset Integrity Management team was in Atlanta for the 2019 Fall Refining and Equipment Standards Meeting from 18-21 November 2019.

Chi represented TWI at the API 581 committee on Risk-Based Inspection, where he presented a talk on the subject of corrosion under insulation.

The four-day event included an array of technical standards committee meetings covering refining and chemical process equipment.

There was also an API / AFPM operating practices symposium and a networking reception including tabletop exhibits.

Also invited to the meeting was TWI Technology Fellow, Isabel Hadley, who undertook a diplomatic mission to liaise between the API 579-1/ASME FFS-1 and BS 7910/BS 7608 committees at a meeting of the API/ASME standards body. The US committee is currently finishing editing a new edition of the API/ASME fitness for service procedure API 579-1/ASME FFS-1, which is due for publication next year.

Isabel gave a presentation on the UK committee's progress towards BS 7910:2019, and it was agreed that the BS 7910, R6 (UK nuclear integrity procedure), and API/ASME committees should continue to liaise with each other.
