The increasing use of flexible pipes in subsea with high pressure/high temperature brings about much more challenges, for example flexible riser fatigue, bird-caging and armour wire disorganization, development of flexible pipes with smooth bore and ones with anti-H2S layer, which demand operators to adopt an effective integrity management program including every phase of flexible pipe industry to avoid reduction of production. To date, much research work has been carried out on this topic.

In this paper, the applicable inspection and monitoring measures are presented as proposals to develop the integrity management of flexible pipes. Meanwhile, this paper takes a practical project as an example to show the whole process of integrity management study clearly. The process can be used as reference for the other similar integrity management projects.
