Timeline of Roadmap Development Today 2013 Feb: NESCC developed an interconnecting roadmap between research – NRCquestions – Standards & Codes May: Roadmap reviewed at the ASME BPV meeting in Miami to further refine roadmap. July: Monthly meeting begins to address changes or updates to Roadmap. Inclusion of CC-808 in addition to CC-755. Apr: ASME, NESCC, and NRC refined Roadmap to reflect short and long term goals. Workshop held at EPRI (D.C.) with Industry Stakeholders to refine goals and responsibilities. Achieving a conditioned code case in short term. Today: Inform buried pipe stakeholders of process and gain feedback on their participation
Roadmap Management: • Monthly HDPE Roadmap Tracking Meetings: • Meetings • In person meeting at ASME Code Weeks – 4 times/a year • Teleconference format – 8 times/year • Open participation meetings to update current and future rule making and R&D Efforts to resolve Issues. • Advantage of Roadmap Meeting at ASME Code Week • Attending by Committee Section Members and various Chairs to update a variety of HDPE Code work under way. • Methodology to disseminate Roadmap • Monthly email distribution • Will explore alternative methods
Industry Response: • Not many aware of NESCC or Activities • Unrealistic expectations of NESCC and DOE role. • There are definite projects where HDPE could be a solution, but management at plants is hesitant. • Not clear right now how industry can play a role for code/regulatory process. I have put those that contacted me onto the list of roadmap call-in attendees. • Code Case may not address some of newer technologies: Cure in place pipe and slip-lining.
