Asset Integrity category covers issues related to the ability of an asset to perform its required function effectively and efficiently whilst protecting health, safety and the environment and the means of ensuring that the people, systems, processes and resources that deliver integrity are in place, in use and will perform when required over the whole lifecycle of the asset.

An Asset Integrity Management System (AIMS) should address the quality at every stage of the asset life cycle, from the design of new facilities to maintenance management to decommissioning. Inspections, auditing/assurance and overall quality processes are just some of the tools designed to make an integrity management system effective. The AIMS should also endeavour to maintain the asset in a fit-for-service condition while extending its remaining life in the most reliable, safe, and cost-effective manner. The AIM programs should attempt to meet API-580, API-581, and PAS 55 requirements, as applicable. The AIMS document will stipulate the requirements for subsequent Integrity Management Plans.

Issues around corrosion, erosion, metallurgy, etc. falls under this category.
