DIN EN ISO 14224
Petroleum, petrochemical and natural gas industries - Collection and exchange of reliability and maintenance data for equipment (ISO 14224:2016, Corrected version 2016-10-01); English version EN ISO 14224:2016, only on CD-ROM

Title (German)

Erdöl-, petrochemische und Erdgasindustrie - Sammlung und Austausch von Zuverlässigkeits- und Wartungsdaten für Ausrüstungen (ISO 14224:2016, korrigierte Fassung 2016-10-01); Englische Fassung EN ISO 14224:2016, nur auf CD-ROM


This International Standard provides a comprehensive basis for the collection of reliability and maintenance (RM) data in a standard format for equipment in all facilities and operations within the petroleum, natural gas and petrochemical industries during the operational life cycle of equipment. It describes data collection principles and associated terms and definitions that constitute a "reliability language" that can be useful for communicating operational experience. The failure modes defined in the normative part of this International Standard can be used as a "reliability thesaurus" for various quantitative as well as qualitative applications. This International Standard also describes data quality control and assurance practices to provide guidance for the user. Standardization of data collection practices facilitates the exchange of information between parties, such as plants, owners, manufacturers and contractors. This International Standard establishes requirements that any in-house or commercially available RM data system is required to meet when designed for RM data exchange. Examples, guidelines and principles for the exchange and merging of such RM data are addressed. This International Standard also provides a framework and guidelines for establishing performance objectives and requirements for equipment reliability and availability performance. Annex A contains a summary of equipment that is covered by this International Standard. This International Standard defines a minimum amount of data that is required to be collected, and it focuses on two main issues: - data requirements for the categories of data to be collected for use in various analysis methodologies; - standardized data format to facilitate the exchange of reliability and maintenance data between plants, owners, manufacturers and contractors. The following main categories of data are to be collected: a) equipment data, for example equipment taxonomy, equipment attributes; b) failure data, for example failure cause, failure consequence; c) maintenance data, for example maintenance action, resources used, maintenance consequence, down time. Clause 9 gives further details on data content and data format. The main areas where such data are used are the following: 1) reliability, for example failure events and failure mechanisms; 2) availability/efficiency, for example equipment availability, system availability, plant production availability; 3) maintenance, for example corrective and preventive maintenance, maintenance plan, maintenance supportability; 4) safety and environment, such as equipment failures with adverse consequences for safety and/or environment. This International Standard does not apply to the following: i. data on (direct) cost issues; ii. data from laboratory testing and manufacturing (for example, accelerated lifetime testing), see also 5.2; iii. complete equipment data sheets (only data seen relevant for assessing the reliability performance are included); iv. additional on-service data that an operator, on an individual basis, can consider useful for operation and maintenance; v. methods for analysing and applying RM data (however, principles for how to calculate some basic reliability and maintenance parameters are included in the annexes). The responsible committee for German collaboration is Working Group NA 109-00-01 AA "Materialien, Ausrüstungen und Offshore-Bauwerke für die Erdöl-, petrochemische und Erdgasindustrie - Spiegelausschuss zu CEN/TC 12 und ISO/TC 67" ("Materials, equipment and offshore structures for petroleum, petrochemical and natural gas industries - Mirror Committee of CEN/TC 12 and ISO/TC 67") at DIN Standards Committee Petroleum and Natural Gas Industries (NÖG).
