    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Sets out good design and management principles and practices for the construction, operation and maintenance of manufacturing and processing plants and associated transportation and storage systems.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Code of Practice is intended to apply whenever combustible dusts are encountered in quantities sufficient to give rise to a fire and/or explosion. This would normally include, but is not limited to, manufacturing plants and processes (where dusts may be generated or used as part of the process) and bulk storage and handling installations.It provides a means by which relevant parties can firstly determine whether or not risks exist within an existing or a proposed system or facility, secondly ascertain the nature of such risks, and thirdly determine the means by which the criteria for safe design, construction, operation and maintenance can be met.The Code is not intended to apply to parts of pulverized fuel combustion systems, or other systems where burning is intended. Where other applicable Standards and Codes exist for the design, construction, operation and maintenance of those systems, they may be adopted.
