A "Standard" will cover a specific item or part of a specific item.
Example:
- B16.10 Face-to-Face and End-to-End Dimensions for Ferrous Valves
or
- B16.28 Wrought Steel Butt welded Short Radius Elbows and Returns


A "Code" will cover the technical issues of the Design of all Piping for a type of Facility.
Example:
- B31.3 Chemical Plant and Petroleum Refinery Piping
or
- B31.4 Liquid Pipeline Transportation Systems for Hydrocarbons, Liquid Petroleum Gas, Anhydrous Ammonia, and Alcohol's
Do it once and Do it Right
