In the US, guidance for most process plants an equipment is delineated from 10CFR29 Process Safety Management. The color coding for piping is explained in ANSI 13.1. Color coding and requirements for equipment, vessels, and transport is under DOT regulations (placards for transit vehicles and NFPA diamonds for vessels and containers). Corportions and companies should have minimal guilines and standards already in place. However, be aware that with increased scrutiny over fractination processes, surveillance of fracing fluids and wastes may be viewed in terms of hazardous materials requirements and standards. In a nutshell, company-sppecific policies and procedures should encompass the requirements as long as they are spelled out and adhered with. Typically, emphasis on color coding of hazardoius materials (e.g. wastes, high pressure systems) and safety systems (e.g. fire protection) are paramount.
