The paper describes stages in the development of a standard for the internal pressure testing of tubular components at elevated temperatures. The needs for such a standard are identified and the background for the preparation of a code of practice is outlined. As the code of practice itself is appended to the paper, only a limited number of important aspects are selected for more detailed clarification. Finally a proposal is presented for a verification testing programme covering a wide range of testing situations, which is intended to enable the eventual adoption of an improved version of the code of practice as a European standard.
