standard for color code

Hi all,
Does anyone knows about some standard for process and utility piping color code?

RE: standard for color code

And there are similar suggestions from CGA and NFPA.

RE: standard for color code

Just to let all of you know.....

the colour coding that was followed by my current company on the field for oil and gas pipinig / pipelines was totally the opposite of what was being used in the oil company I worked with earlier bigsmile

Hence i realised that although there may be an international standard or a guideline on such matters it is totally upto the comapny on how they would manage the colour coding of their pipelines / pipework and consequently set up their own standards smile

RE: standard for color code

As far as I know there are no requirements, only recommendations and guides, like the 'pirates code' is is a really more of a suggestion.
Yes, each company must establish and maintain their own system.
