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.

International Standards are drafted in accordance with the rules given in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2.

The main task of technical committees is to prepare International Standards. Draft International Standards

adopted by the technical committees are circulated to the member bodies for voting. Publication as an

International Standard requires approval by at least 75 % of the member bodies casting a vote.

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.

ISO 15838 was prepared by Technical Committee ISO/TC 8, Ships and marine technology, Subcommittee

SC 3, Piping and machinery.

Couplings Used in Piping Applications
3 Terms and definitions
For the purposes of this document, the following terms and definitions apply.
3.1
fitting
a device used to change pipe direction, size or adapt to other joining methods

NOTE This device is used with pipe or other fittings to create a working system. Shapes such as elbows, tees, crosses,

reducers and special shapes are used as needed to fulfil system design specifications.

3.2
fabricated fitting
a fitting constructed by welding together sections of pipe or tube
3.3
