When a country receives the Olympic Games, the date to be respected cannot be postponed so some projects cannot bear a delay. Others are more flexible in their time.

Code, Standard, and handbook are terms that are very often heard in the environment of Engineers and professionals working in the oil and gas industry. In general, the standard is a technical definition as well as instructions directed at the designer, manufacturer, operator or user of a piece of equipment.
