Technical

At PIPA we know the opportunities created by plastic pipeline systems and advocate the increased use and consumption throughout Australia.

Our organisation brings together industry experts to form committees and working groups focused on addressing industry priorities. Collaborating with global counterparts and industry professionals we develop and publish robust guidelines and specifications for plastic pipes and fittings.

Positioned on the Council of Standards Australia International and as a nominating body to Standards Australia and New Zealand Technical Committees, PIPA members contribute to the development of these Standards and Guidelines.

We collaborate with the Coal Seam Gas (CSG) Industry, assisting in ongoing development of the Code of Practice for upstream polyethylene gathering networks.

Assisting in the development of Standards, specifications, and practices enables us to ensure the proper use of plastic systems.

We set benchmarks for industry practice in best manufacture, installation and use of plastic pipeline systems. Ensuring the environmental impact of plastics pipelines systems throughout their lifecycle meet or exceed legislative and community standards.

We’re trusted to provide independent information and help resolve challenges in application and use.
