JIP33 has issued the S-562 Ball Valves (API 6D) specification for user feedback review. The consultation period will run for four weeks and will close on Tue, 23 November 2021 at 23:00 GMT.
The purpose of this user feedback review is to capture your assessment on the requirements of an existing specification so that we can further our stated goals of improving procurement and delivery of equipment for the oil and gas industry. This is the first step in the update and revision of our specifications and is a chance for purchasers and suppliers to be able to comment on how the current specification requirements can be improved. During the revision process, the document will be updated in accordance with the minimum common set of specification requirements for the procurement of trunnion mounted ball valves (only) to API Specification 6D, 25th Edition, for application in the petroleum and natural gas industries.
The JIP33 standardized procurement specification normally follows a common document structure comprising of four documents, which together with the purchase order define the overall technical specification for procurement. This specification does not have a Data Sheet and consists of 3 documents only.
It has been developed in consultation with a broad user and supplier base to realize benefits from standardization and achieve significant project and schedule cost reductions.
