API 570 PDF 2018 Free Download: A Guide for Piping Inspectors
If you are a piping inspector or a piping engineer, you may have heard of API 570. It is an inspection code developed and published by the American Petroleum Institute (API) that covers in-service inspection, rating, repair, and alteration of piping systems. It is intended for use by organizations that maintain or have access to an authorized inspection agency, a repair organization, and technically qualified piping engineers, inspectors, and examiners.

API 570 certification is a valuable credential that demonstrates your knowledge and skills in piping inspection. It also benefits employers and the industry as a whole by helping to:
Provide a continued high level of safety through the use of inspectors specialized in process piping
Improve management control of process unit inspection, repair, alteration and rerating
Reduce the potential for inspection delays resulting from regulatory requirements
To become an API 570 certified piping inspector, you need to meet the eligibility requirements, apply online, and pass the certification exam. The exam consists of two parts: a closed-book part that tests your everyday working knowledge of API 570 and the applicable reference documents, and an open-book part that requires you to use more detailed information from the documents.
API 570 Inspection Code: Requirements and Procedures
API 570 covers inspection, rating, repair, and alteration procedures for metallic and fiberglass-reinforced plastic (FRP) piping systems and their associated pressure relieving devices that have been placed in service. It applies to piping systems for process fluids, hydrocarbons, and similar flammable or toxic fluid services.
The code specifies the in-service inspection and condition-monitoring program as well as repair guidance that is needed to determine and maintain the on-going integrity of piping systems. It also provides methods for calculating corrosion rates and remaining life of piping components.
The code does not cover inspection of specialty equipment such as instrumentation, exchanger tubes, and control valves. It also does not replace the original construction requirements governing a piping system before it is placed in service; nor does it conflict with any prevailing regulatory requirements.
API 570 Reference Publications and Codes
The questions on the API 570 exam are derived from the publications listed in the Publications Effectivity Sheet. Only the specific sections of publications that are listed on the sheet will be available to you during the open-book portion of the exam.
The main reference publications and codes for API 570 are:
API 570: Piping Inspection Code: In-service Inspection, Rating, Repair, and Alteration of Piping Systems
ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code: Section V (Nondestructive Examination), Section IX (Qualification Standard for Welding, Brazing and Fusion Procedures; Welders; Brazers; and Welding, Brazing and Fusing Operators)
API RP 571: Damage Mechanisms Affecting Fixed Equipment in the Refining Industry
ASME B16.5: Pipe Flanges and Flanged Fittings
API RP 574: Inspection ification exam. You also need to maintain a current API 510 or API 653 certification.
