This tutorial addresses the background process in how the document was updated along with indicating the participating companies who contributed to this work. The majority of this paper is focused on addressing the “significant” changes as well as “other’ changes that are of particular interest to the reader in understanding changes from the previous ISO/API editions. Included is the background reasoning behind each change. Insight into subject matter for future updates to ISO 13709/ API 610 will be addressed at the end. One area of particular interest is the data sheet program which has been improved and significantly enhanced to become a guide for engineering contractors, end users and pump manufacturers alike for accurately specifying equipment requirements. A special thank you is extended to the late Anthony (Tony) Semple of Bechtel for his hours of dedication to produce this data sheet program.
