203 Categorisation of piping components shall be according to Table B2.

Table B2 Categories for piping and components


Category

IA IB IC II
Flow metering- and instrumentation pipe- Including supports and attachments X
spools, pig receivers, pig launcher and
other special piping items 2)
Standard type X
Flanges and couplings 1) Non-standard type for high pressure, flammable or toxic
fluids X
Valves for Gas & Hydrocarbons
(DN 350 mm and P 100 bar) or X
Valves (DN 25 mm and P 500 bar)6)
(incl. Choke valves) Valves for fluids X

Non-standard valves X
ESD and blow down valves Including actuator and controls. 2) X
Safety valves and rupture discs 2), 3) X
Christmas tree valves, blocks, Surface trees only, unless subsea trees are covered by
X
connections etc. extended scope
Including pressure retaining instruments and special
Non-standard components X
piping parts. 4)
Expansion joints, bellows For flammable or toxic fluids X
Flexible hoses For flammable or toxic fluids X
Swivels and swivel stacks For flammable or toxic fluids X
General instruments Standard, well proven instruments, thermowells, X
pressure gauges, switches, control valves etc.

1) The extent of witnessing tests for category IA piping components may be agreed with DNV for spools etc. containing non-
flammable, non-toxic fluids at low temperature (below 220C) and at low pressures (below 10 bar).
2) A reduced categorisation may be agreed with DNV for spools etc. containing non-flammable, non-toxic fluids at low temperature
(below 220C) and at low pressures (below 10 bar).
3) Design review of valve and bursting disc is not required. The extent of witnessing of leak-, calibration-, capacity- and
qualification- testing to be agreed with DNV based on manufacturers QA/QC system. DNV shall normally witness batch
qualification tests of bursting discs.
4) Categorisation and approval procedure to be agreed with DNV on a case by case basis, considering selection of materials, service
and complexity of design and fabrication method.
5) The approval procedure to be agreed with DNV on a case by case basis, depending on function and criticality. See also relevant
standards covering instrumentation and automation.
6) Otherwise category II, unless special or unconventional design which is considered category IB.
