Definition of Nonstructural Attachment in B31.1

Definition of Nonstructural Attachment in B31.1

I've struggled to find definition of "Nonstructural attachment" in B31.1-2022 para. 127.4.9 and accidently found the definition in BPVC Section III Div.1 NB-1132.1.
The question is that does the definition be applied to B31.1 as well although it is in BPVC Section III Div.1 NB.

RE: Definition of Nonstructural Attachment in B31.1

My guess "nonstructural attachments" do not support the pipe or otherwise transfer a load to the pipping.

RE: Definition of Nonstructural Attachment in B31.1

Nonstructural attachments do not support any load during the operation of the pressure component.

Lifting lugs and trunnions are structural attachments and must pass a load test.
