POP001 is the guideline reference for electrofusion installation. It includes pipe prepartion processes and parameters for welding.
It is important to know and understand these as omitting steps or failing to complete processes adequately can undermine weld quality and lead to failed pipelines.
The processes outlined in POP001 are known as best-practice. It is crucial to always follow best-practice as failure to do so can open operators up to claims of negligence and compromise insurance cover.
