The parameters for Quality Control of both the anti‐corrosion coating and, where required, concrete weight coaling, are reviewed for six major pipelines in which the authors have been directly involved. The importance of field joint anti‐corrosion coatings are discussed, particularly for concrete weight coated pipelines. The differing environment of each project is identified and includes “in‐service” temperature, water depth, mode of pipe lay, together with cathodic protection considerations. The importance of quality control is traced from initial design study to coating and includes practical aspects of on‐site quality assurance. Material selection, application, inspection, safety aspects and economics are discussed.
