The Task Group is formed to assess current industry status, activities, and direction relative to buried component failures, testing, and inspections. Recent buried piping failures have prompted significant industry and regulatory attention to this issue. The Task Group is to review current ASME Section XI rules and compare them to the current industry directions in order to make recommendations to the committee for consideration of what may be appropriate to codify and how best to accomplish this. Considerations will be given to commission letters and activities, operating experience, the Buried Piping Integrity Group, and industry activity through organizations such as NEI, EPRI, NACE, and INPO. Also, current endorsed guidelines such as NEI07-07 Groundwater Protection Initiative and NEI09-14 Management of Buried Piping Integrity will be considered for aspects that warrant codification. Finally, inspection methods and techniques, current and under development, will be considered for possible impact on and inclusion in Section XI requirements. The TG will provide an executive recommendation to SC Exec and will parcel individual actions for consideration to the appropriate subtier committees.
