1.  Scope

1.1

This standard sets out the requirements for fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) crossarms for use on overhead electrical systems.

1.2

Fibre reinforced polymer crossarms are used with connecting hardware and are part of a structure supporting overhead conductors and insulators that includes poles, guys and anchors. This standard specifies requirements for the fibre reinforced polymer crossarm and does not address the overall structure as a system.

Note: An optional classification system is described in Table A.1 of Annex A and is provided as an informative reference for users of the Standard.

1.3

In CSA Standards, “shall” is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user is obliged to satisfy in order to comply with the standard; “should” is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; and “may” is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the standard.

Notes accompanying clauses do not include requirements or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a clause is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material.

Notes to tables and figures are considered part of the table or figure and may be written as requirements.

Annexes are designated normative (mandatory) or informative (non-mandatory) to define their application.

1.4

The values given in SI units are units of record for the purposes of this Standard. The values given in parentheses are for information and comparison only.

Preface

This is the eighth edition of CSA Z662, Oil and gas pipeline systems. It supersedes the previous editions published in 2015, 2011, 2007, 2003, 1999, 1996, and 1994.

The following are the most significant changes, relative to the previous edition:

a) …TBC

The requirements of this Standard are considered to be adequate under conditions normally encountered in the oil and natural gas industry. Specific requirements for abnormal or unusual conditions are not prescribed, nor are all details related to engineering and construction prescribed. It is intended that all work performed within the scope of this Standard meet the standards of safety and integrity expressed or implied herein, and that the requirements of this Standard be applied with due regard to the protection of the environment, which includes land, water, plant life, and animal life. Detailed requirements concerning the protection of the environment are not prescribed.

It is expected that changes will be made from time to time, based on new experience and technology. Where necessary, amendments and supplements will be prepared by the Technical Committee and published in accordance with CSA Group practices.

This Standard was prepared by the Technical Committee on Petroleum and Natural Gas Industry Pipeline Systems and Materials, under the jurisdiction of the Strategic Steering Committee on Petroleum and Natural Gas Industry Systems, and has been formally approved by the Technical Committee.

Notes:

1)      Use of the singular does not exclude the plural (and vice versa) when the sense allows.

2)      Although the intended primary application of this Standard is stated in its Scope, it is important to note that it remains the responsibility of the users of the Standard to judge its suitability for their particular purpose.

3)      This Standard was developed by consensus, which is defined by CSA Policy governing standardization — Code of good practice for standardization as “substantial agreement. Consensus implies much more than a simple majority, but not necessarily unanimity”. It is consistent with this definition that a member may be included in the Technical Committee list and yet not be in full agreement with all clauses of this Standard.

4)       To submit a request for interpretation of this Standard, please send the following information to inquiries@csagroup.org and include “Request for interpretation” in the subject line:

i) define the problem, making reference to the specific clause, and, where appropriate, include an illustrative sketch;

ii) provide an explanation of circumstances surrounding the actual field condition; and

iii) where possible, phrase the request in such a way that a specific “yes” or “no” answer will address the issue.

Committee interpretations are processed in accordance with the CSA Directives and guidelines governing standardization and are available on the Current Standards Activities page at standardsactivities.csa.ca.

5)      This Standard is subject to review five years from the date of publication. Suggestions for its improvement will be referred to the appropriate committee. To submit a proposal for change, please send the following information to inquiries@csagroup.org and include “Proposal for change” in the subject line:

i) Standard designation (number);

ii) relevant clause, table, and/or figure number;

iii) wording of the proposed change; and

iv) rationale for the change.
