engineering standards

Engineering standards are a set of rules and paradigms prescribed by organizations such as the American Petroleum Institute (API), the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), the Canadian Standards Association (CSA), the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), and many others. Standards and codes provide technical details and standard characteristics associated with engineering products, equipment, systems, materials, and processes. Adherence to engineering standards and codes in the oil and gas industry is crucial to ensure compliance with various safety norms as well as process consistency and equipment compatibility.
