Standard Codes
Better assessment of corrosion, maintenance related problems, and a new category of features and defects relating to the rehabilitation/renewal of existing sewers.

Training & Certification of Users
Every student will be assigned a certification number that will become part of any assessments that the student provides, assuming training has been completed successfully.  This can be used as a requirement by municipalities in their specifications and will insure nationwide use of the data.

Standard PACP Data Format
Includes data dictionary that defines fields, formatting, and valid entries.

Mapping Symbology Standards
Establishing color and line-type for use in mapping basic parameters such as diameter, pipe material, depth, and condition rating.

Condition Ratings
Weighting factors are used to convert the descriptive data of the PACP codes into general categories of pipe condition. This will then focus attention on sewer segments that need further evaluation/consideration for renewal or replacement.
