Process Industry Practices (PIP)

IHS Markit is your source for PIP standards and publications.

Process Industry Practices (PIP) is a consortium of process industry owners and engineering construction contractors. PIP was organized in 1993 and is a separately funded initiative of the Construction Industry Institute (CII), at The University of Texas at Austin.

PIP harmonizes member companies’ internal standards for design, procurement, construction, and maintenance into a set of industry wide “Practices” for voluntary use.

PIP publishes and maintains recommended Practices for the process industry in the following disciplines: Civil, Structural, and Architectural (CSA); Coatings, Insulation, and Refractory (CIR); Electrical; Machinery; Piping and Instrument Diagrams (P&ID); Piping; Process Control & Analyzers; and Vessels. Specific Practices include design, selection, specification, and installation information.
