EN10204 3.1

EN10204 3.1

I have an inspector telling me the mill test certs must have the dimensional information.. as in B16.9, B16.11, MSS SP-97. Can anyone tell me if this is a requirement? I don't know where to find this information. It just seems redundant to me.

RE: EN10204 3.1

for what material?
Usually the certs just state nominal or ordered size.
I don't know of any spec that requires actual dimensional inspection data on the cert.

RE: EN10204 3.1

See PED Annex 1 Section 4.3
The cert must state the material complies with a specific specification and that particular specification must be listed on the cert but there is no requirement for actual dimenensions.
150 nb Sch 80 pipe is perfectly acceptable on a cert.

RE: EN10204 3.1

Concerning the content of a certificate: EN 10204 Para. 1.3 NOTE "The list of information that may be included in the inspection documents can be found in appropriate documents e.g. EN 10168 for steel."
EN 10168 clearly defines that the nominal dimensions should be certified under number B09 to B11.  For complex shapes, it is possible to mention "conform to sketch xyz" and the sketch is joined to the certificate.

RE: EN10204 3.1

What the inspector wants on the mill test is the ASME- B16.9, B16.11 the MSS SP-97. Does the EN 10168 make any reference that this is a requirement. Has anyone every had an inspector reject a mtr because this information was missing from the cert?


RE: EN10204 3.1

No. The mill test report provides necessary information per the original material specification requirements and additional information as agreed upon between the supplier and Purchaser. The referenced ASME standards make reference to accepted material specifications for use as fittings, etc. Why would final dimensional information be required on a wrought product form that can be used in other applications besides fittings?  

RE: EN10204 3.1

I agree with you 100%, how am I going to convince this inspector?
This morning I have already emailed several stockist/suppliers with this stupid request. I am waiting for them to tell me- NO WAY ARE WE GOING BACK TO THE MILLS.

I really appreciate having others agree with me.
