What is pipe marking?

All pipework must be appropriately labelled to inform employees, contractors and emergency services about the contents of the pipe.

The British Standards BS1710 are recognized legal requirements for plant safety and pipe installation compliance. It is important that piping systems are appropriately labelled so that people can identify the fluids and gases they transport. This is done by conveying specific information using colour coding as well as text and safety symbols.
