Recommended Practice for Unique Identification in Power Plants and Related Facilities - Principles and Definitions
|Publication Date:||1 January 1983|
This recommended practice provides a single source of unique identification principles and definitions which, along with related recommended practices concerning component function identifiers, implementation instructions, and system descriptions, make up a concept, entitled the Energy Industry Identification System (EIIS), for uniquely identifying systems, structures, and components of nuclear and fossil fueled power plant projects (electric power generating stations) and related facilities. Hydro and other types of power plant projects are not included in this issue.
The purpose of this series of recommended practices is to present a common language of communication which will permit a user to correlate a system, structure, or component with another organization for the purposes of reporting, comparison, or general communication. It does not require a using organization to change their own internal identification concept, but rather they have only to transcode at the interface of their organization from their internal language to this common language concept.
The users may, if they so choose, adopt this concept for their internal use. It represents the accumulated practice of the industry assimilated into one set of practices. A significant feature of this concept is that the unique identification code identifies the function at the component level and not the hardware itself.
