Pipe Support Inspection and Test Plan Points

H: Hold Point implies that relevant production activities shall not proceed until the continuation of work is permitted by Purchaser. (Notification req'd)

W: Witness point implies that Purchaser intends to witness the designated inspection feature. If Purchaser decides not to witness the relevant feature, production can proceed without permission of Purchaser. (Notification req'd)

S: Witness, but spot check basis. Initial operation will be witness point and subsequent operation will be witnessed at discretion of Purchaser considering the results of previous inspection. (Random Inspection : Notification not req'd)

You must review your purchase order and transfer your specification and requirements in above ITP. You are recommended to add 3 more columns in above pipe support ITP, one for construction code, second one for acceptance criteria, and third one for verifying quality control reports.

Type of Inspection by Purchaser may be changed according to equipment criticality and vendor QC evaluation at job stage.

The pipe support manufacturer must submit its quality control plan. This plan must meet the inspection and test plan requirements.
