This is the first edition of CSA SPE-225.7, Managing near-neutral pH stress corrosion cracking.
The purpose of this document is to provide an overview of the latest Canadian transmission pipeline industry practices for the management of stress corrosion cracking (SCC), with the goals of

b) protecting the environment, private and company property; and
c) maintaining the reliable and economical operation of the Canadian pipeline system.
This document is not a consensus product: that is, it is not a Standard, and it has not been formally reviewed or approved by a CSA Technical Committee.
This document was developed by the Pipeline Integrity Working Group under the auspices of the Canadian Energy Pipeline Association (CEPA), a voluntary, non-profit industry association representing major Canadian transmission pipeline companies.
CEPA transferred the ownership of this document to CSA Group in November 2021.
