Fitting Registration ProblemsWe have had 2 jobs where fittings that carried current CRNs were refused by two jurisdictions because the Code of construction of the piping system did not match the code used to calculate the fittings. In one case we had to change the design code of the piping system to match the fittings. In the other case we had to re-register the fittings to match the piping system. The piping system was put on hold until the fittings duplicate CRNs were complete. Although this has only happened to us twice we have experienced many CRN requirements that initially seem unnecessary but end up becoming standard practice. (Our files PVE-2736 and PVE-3786.)
