The Task Group shall have responsibility for developing and proposing Code revisions and Code Cases concerning the examination of items that do not allow the Code required examination coverage, based on either material type or configuration. The initial focus shall be on new plant construction. Those configurations being addressed shall include but not limited to 1) pipe-to-valve, 2) pipe-to-pump, and 3) pipe-to-fitting. The material to be addressed is austenitic material, either cast or forged, that currently does not allow full Code required examination coverage with single sided access. Another issue is cast stainless steel, where no Appendix VIII examination qualification exists at present. The Task Group shall refer potential Code actions to the appropriate Subgroups as needed. This Task Group shall report directly to the BPV XI Executive Committee.
