Language in which you want to receive the document.


This European Standard establishes the general criteria and recommendations for the design, installation, monitoring and commissioning of the cathodic protection systems for submarine pipelines.
This standard is applicable to all grades of carbon manganese steel and to stainless steel pipelines; it covers all types of sea water and seabed environments encountered in submerged conditions.
The cathodic protection of short lengths of submarine pipelines and their branches, which are directly connected to cathodically protected onshore pipelines, are outside of the scope of this standard (see EN 12954:2001).
The cathodic protection of risers is included in this standard only if they are insulated from the supporting structure. The cathodic protection of the risers in direct electrical contact with the supporting structure is included in EN 12495.
