This guideline provides a recommendation and potential guidance to address observed gaps in data and
recordkeeping practices that are currently prescribed in the ASME pipeline standards B31.8, B31.8S, and
B31.4. The authors reviewed pipeline industry standards and standards from other industries to identify
potential best practices and lessons learned. The industry needs a go-forward approach that will manage
new records and data in a way that will maximize the utility of available records wherever practical, and
improve upon record keeping practices for the future to take advantage of modern technology and lessons
learned.
