Overdue Inspections

Piping inspections for in-service equipment that have not been performed by their established due dates documented in the inspection schedule/plan and that do not have an approved deferral per 7.10. A piping system not currently in operation due to a process outage would not be considered overdue for inspection if its due date coincides with the time it is out-of-service; however, it would be overdue for inspection if it were placed back in-service before being inspected.
