1 Application Scope
This Standard specifies the technological specifications for periodic inspection
agencies of gas cylinders (hereinafter referred to as “inspection agency”).
This Standard applies to inspection agencies of seamless gas cylinders (including
steel gas cylinders, aluminium alloy seamless gas cylinders, stainless steel seamless
gas cylinders, compressed natural gas cylinders for automotive vehicles), welded gas
cylinders (including steel welded gas cylinders and stainless steel welded gas
cylinders), liquefied petroleum gas cylinders (including liquefied petroleum gas
cylinders, liquefied dimethyl ether cylinders), liquefied petroleum gas cylinders for
automotive vehicles (including liquefied petroleum gas cylinders for automotive
vehicles and liquefied dimethyl ether cylinders for automotive vehicles), dissolved
acetylene gas cylinders, wrapped cylinders [including small volume fibre wrapped gas
cylinders with metal liners, fiber loop-wrapped gas cylinders with metal liners (including
those for automotive vehicles) and fiber fully-wrapped gas cylinders with metal liners
(including those for automotive vehicles)], insulated cylinders (including welded
insulated gas cylinders, liquefied natural gas cylinders for automotive vehicles).
This standard does not apply to inspection agencies of gas cylinders for stations, large
volume seamless gas cylinders for long tube trailers and tube bundle containers.
