Fitness-For-Service (FFS) assessments are quantitative engineering evaluations that are performed to demonstrate the structural integrity of an in-service component that may contain a flaw or damage, or that may be operating under a specific condition that might cause a failure. This training course provides guidance for conducting FFS assessments using methodologies specifically prepared for pressurised equipment. The guidelines provided in this Standard can be used to make run-repair-replace decisions to help determine if components in pressurised equipment containing flaws that have been identified by inspection can continue to operate safely for some period of time.
