This standard covers the commissioning of new and existing gas fired plant and ancillary equipment, designed for use on 1st, 2nd or 3rd family gases. It also applies to existing plant which has been refitted, refurbished, modified, repaired or serviced and in any circumstance where recommissioning of plant is deemed necessary. This Standard promotes the adoption of sound, basic commissioning procedures for gas fired plant and ancillary equipment. It is intended to act as guidance for the writing of specialised commissioning instructions and not, in itself, a commissioning procedure for any specific item of plant.
Specifically, it contains details of:
- Legal considerations such as Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations
- A typical commissioning sequence
- Commissioning procedures, including planning and programming, inspection, activation, operation, completion and handover.
