Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards

bodies (ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out

through ISO technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical

committee has been established has the right to be represented on that committee. International

organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work.

ISO collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of

electrotechnical standardization.

The procedures used to develop this document and those intended for its further maintenance are

described in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 1. In particular the different approval criteria needed for the

different types of ISO documents should be noted. This document was drafted in accordance with the

editorial rules of the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2 (see www .iso .org/directives).

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of

patent rights. ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights. Details of

any patent rights identified during the development of the document will be in the Introduction and/or

on the ISO list of patent declarations received (see www .iso .org/patents).

Any trade name used in this document is information given for the convenience of users and does not

constitute an endorsement.

and offshore structures for petroleum, petrochemical and natural gas industries, Subcommittee SC 2,

Pipeline transportation systems.

This fourth edition cancels and replaces the third edition (ISO 3183:2012), which has been technically

revised. It also incorporates the Amendment (ISO 3183:2012/Amd.1:2017).
This document supplements API Spec 5L, 46 edition (2018).

The technical requirements of this document and API Spec 5L used to be identical (except for the

inclusion of Annex M in the ISO publication). In the meantime API Spec 5L has been technically revised

as API Spec 5L, 46 edition (2018). The purpose of this document is to bring it up to date, by referencing

the current edition of API Spec 5L and including supplementary content.
The main changes compared to the previous edition are as follows:

— Technical changes now incorporated by normative reference to API Spec 5L have been made in the

API Spec 5L subclauses addressing
— weld seams (API Spec 5L, 8.8.2 clarifies heat treatment),

— tolerances for straightness (API Spec 5L, 9.11.3.4b and J.6.4 pipe end tolerances tightened),

— end squareness (API Spec 5L, 9.12.6 defined in detail),
— impact test pieces (API Spec 5L, Table 22 test piece size table corrected),

— location of hardness tests (API Spec 5L, Figures H.1 and J.1 weld centre line for HFW detailed),

— welded jointers (API Spec 5L, Annex M fit up and geometry, marking & NDT addressed),

— a new annex N has been added for PSL 2 pipe ordered for applications requiring longitudinal

plastic strain capacity, and

The requirements specified in API Spec 5L, 46 edition (2018) shall apply, with the supplements and

exceptions specified in 4.2 to 4.4.

Pipe manufactured in accordance with this document can be named “ISO 3183 pipe” and may be marked

in accordance with 4.4.2. If no exceptions to API Spec 5L are taken and the pipe therefore conforms to

both standards, the pipe can be named “API 5L pipe” and may be marked in accordance with 4.4.3.

4.2 PSL 2 pipe for European onshore natural gas transmission pipelines

Annex A shall be applied for PSL 2 pipe ordered for European onshore natural gas transmission

4.3 Information to be supplied by the purchaser

In addition to the requirements of API Spec 5L, 46 edition (2018), Clause 7, the purchase order for pipe

manufactured according to this document shall also include the following information:

a) confirmation if Annex A of this document, i.e. ISO 3183:2019, is applicable;
b) marking requirements according to 4.4.
4.4 Marking
4.4.1 General

The requirements specified in API Spec 5L, 46 edition (2018) shall apply together with the exceptions

specified in 4.4.2 to 4.4.3.

This document describes two marking options (see 4.4.2 and 4.4.3). Additional markings, as desired

by the manufacturer or as specified in the purchase order, may be applied, provided that they do not

interrupt the sequence of the required markings per 4.4.2 or 4.4.3. If additional markings are used,

these markings shall be located after the end of the required marking sequence or as a separate marking

at some other location on the pipe.

Annex A
(normative)
PSL 2 pipe ordered for European onshore natural gas transmission
pipelines
A.1 General

This annex specifies additional provisions that apply for API 5L PSL 2 pipe for European onshore natural

gas transmission pipelines. The chemical elements of the composition could be outside the limits of API

Spec 5L and therefore ISO 3183 pipe in accordance with this annex conforms to ISO 3183 only. The steel

grade designation concludes with the letter “E”.

NOTE The chemistry limits in this annex could be different than those in API Spec 5L. Users of this document

are cautioned that pipe manufactured with chemistry not in accordance with API Spec 5L, cannot be certified as

conforming with API Spec 5L.
A.2 Additional information to be supplied by the purchaser

In addition to specifying API Spec 5L, 46 edition (2018), 7.1 items a) to g) and 7.2 items a) to c), the

purchaser shall specify in the purchase order which of the following provisions apply for the specific

order item:
a) items that are subject to mandatory agreement, if applicable:
1) chemical composition for pipe with t > 25,0 mm (0.984 in) (see A.4.1.2);

2) carbon equivalent limit for Grades L415NE (X60NE) and L555QE (X80QE) (see Table A.1);

3) tensile properties for pipe with t > 25,0 mm (0.984 in) (see A.4.2.1);
4) minimum average CVN energy (see A.4.4.1);

5) diameter and out-of-roundness tolerances for the ends of SMLS pipe with t > 25,0 mm (0.984 in)

(see Table A.3, footnote b);

6) diameter and out-of-roundness tolerances for pipe with D > 1 422 mm (56.000 in) (see

Table A.3);
7) type of inspection certificate (see A.7.1.1);
8) party issuing the inspection certificate (see A.7.1.1);
b) items that apply as prescribed, unless otherwise agreed:

A.3 Manufacturing
A.3.1 Manufacturing procedure

The pipe manufacturer and the stockist, where products are supplied through a stockist, shall operate

a quality system. If agreed, the quality system shall be approved by the purchaser.

NOTE The term “stockist” is equivalent to, and interchangeable with, the term “distributor”.

If agreed, the manufacturing procedure shall be qualified in accordance with API Spec 5L, 46 edition

(2018), Annex B.
