1 Scope

lThe AD 2000 Code can be applied to satisfy the basic
safety requirements of the Pressure Equipment Directive,
principally for the conformity assessment in accordance
with moduies "G" and "B1 + F .
iThe AD 2000 Code is structured along the lines of a selfcontained concept. If other technical ruks are used in
accordance with the state of the ati to solve related problems, it is assumed that the Overall concept has been
taken into account.
IThe AD 2000 Code can be used as appropriate for other
%Y moduks of the Pressure Equipment Directive or for different sectors of the law. Responsibility for testing is as
specified in the provisions of the relevant sector of the

2.2 A piping system can be regarded as a single pipeline
- it conveys fluids of the Same group and Same state of
aggregation and
- it is designed for the Same maximum allowable pressure
over the complete piping system.

lnterruptions by various system components such as Pumps,
machines, tanks etc. do not prevent an assembly being
regarded as a single pipeline.
2.3 Above-ground piping is that which is laid in rooms or
outdoors without an earth or sand covering. This also includes piping laid in unfilled trenches or ducts.

Earth-covered piping is that which is completely or partially

I covered by earth or sand, even if it also lies completelyor partially above the suriace of the ground.

3 General
Piping shall be constructed so that when it is properly operated it safely withstands the mechanical, chemical and thermal Stresses occurring in normal use and remains tight.
Vibrations in the piping shall be taken into account. It shall
in particular:
(1) be constructed so that it safely withstands the maximum
allowable pressuresand maximum/minimumtemperatures;
(2) be manufactured of materials that
a) have the required mechanical properties in the finished component,
b) are not attacked in a hazardous manner by the conveyed substance (fluid) and do not form a hazardous
combination when the materials are exposed to the
conveyed substancez),
C) are corrosion resistant, or protectedagainst corrosion
when subjected to corrosive influences; corrosive influences are taken to mean only external influences
(3) be fitted with devices necessary for safe operation, which
safely fulfil their task.


Requirements of the manufacturer

This also applies to the manufacturers of basic materials.
