Members of ISTB and ISTA have developed a list of issues regarding ISTB Pump Implementation that have been identified during IST Program Reviews, Day to Day operation of IST Programs, and site assessments of IST Programs (including issues found during updates). Implementation of the ISTB requirements for pumps in commercial US plants has presented challenges over the last few years with all the changes in ISTB since the issuance of the 1995 Edition of the ASME OM Code through the 2006 Addenda. This paper will discuss issues related to IST implementation. Good practices will be discussed to help IST engineers improve their programs. Some projected issues with implementation of 2012 Edition Appendix V will also be discussed.
