EEMUA Publication 177 Guide to the UK Pressure Systems Safety Regulations (2000)

Version: Digital/PDF

If you are a user from an EEMUA member company, please log in and download your complimentary digital edition here.

EEMUA Publication 177 gives practical guidance on the interpretation of the UK Pressure Systems Safety Regulations (PSSR) 2000 relating to the periodic Examination of Pressure systems and certain associated aspects, and considers in particular Regulations 2, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 13, plus Schedule 2. The PSSR contains a complex series of requirements and allows for a considerable element of experienced, professional judgement by the User and/or Competent Person, together with a demand for careful interpretation.

Significantly, the new edition of EEMUA 177 includes guidance on the Postponement of Examinations within Regulation 9; a revision to the guidance on Regulation 10 Action in case of Imminent danger; additional guidance on Regulation 13 Modification and repair; together with other key points of interest based upon actual use of Pressure systems covered by the PSSR.

EEMUA 177 brings clarity by explaining how to approach specific aspects of the PSSR and helps minimise unclear areas that can cause confusion about what to do with respect to the Regulations. An example of this is with Regulation 10 wherein EEMUA 177 provides a flowchart that helps the Competent Person decide whether it is a case Imminent danger and needs to be reported to the HSE. The requirements under Regulation 10 are also given context with other relevant legislation. 

This publication was produced by a working group of EEMUA’s User Inspectorate Committee (UIC), which brings together experts from a range of industry sectors. Whilst the guide refers throughout to UK regulations and practice, much of the general advice is relevant to practice outside the UK.

EEMUA 177 does not refer in detail to the other Regulations already clearly expounded in the British Health and Safety Executive (HSE) Approved Code of Practice, Safety of Pressure Systems (ACOP) L122, which is freely available from the HSE. This EEMUA guide, therefore, should not be read in isolation, but should be used to augment the existing ACOP.  

The guidance and good practice in EEMUA 177 and 231 can be applied on site through taking the EEMUA Mechanical Integrity Practitioner Certificate, a blended online learning training course. At the awareness / introductory level, you may be interested in taking the EEMUA 177 Pressure Systems e-learning and EEMUA 231 Mechanical Integrity e-learning training courses.

2000, Edition 1

ISBN: 978 0 85931 121 2

EEMUA Publication 199 On-line leak sealing of piping: Guide to safety considerations

Version: Digital/PDF

If you are a user from an EEMUA member company, please log in and download your complimentary digital edition here.

Certain types of leak from pressurised piping (including valves) may be effectively contained by on-line sealing methods involving the use of elastomeric compounds. These (essentially temporary) repair methods were originally developed for application to leaking steam and condensate systems. However with additional safety precautions, they may be applied to process piping systems containing flammable, corrosive and/or toxic fluids. The publication gives guidance on the limits of application of the technique, the factors to be considered when evaluating the feasibility of its use, the preparation and execution of the procedure and the type of risk assessment required.

EEMUA Publication 200 Guide to the specification, installation and maintenance of spring supports for piping

Version: Digital/PDF

If you are a user from an EEMUA member company, please log in and download your complimentary digital edition here.

A common problem faced on construction sites and operating plants with certain piping systems, is a lack of specialist knowledge on effective and safe setting and maintenance of piping spring supports, particularly where there is a significant temperature difference between the hot (operating) and cold (shutdown) conditions of the plant. This publication aims to address this problem by providing data on the specification of piping supports (in particular the information required by the manufacturer), information to be recorded in the pipe support index, installation and commissioning procedures, in-service inspection and maintenance, and dynamic restraints.

This publication addresses the problem. It covers the specification of piping supports—in particular the information required by the manufacturer—the information to be recorded in the pipe support index, installation and commissioning procedures, in-service inspection and maintenance, and, as a separate section, dynamic restraints.

EEMUA Publication 201 Control rooms: a guide to their specification, design, commissioning and operation

Version: Digital/PDF

If you are a user from an EEMUA member company, please log in and download your complimentary digital edition here

This third edition of EEMUA 201 was produced in response to changes in technology and good practice across industry. EEMUA 201 provides a comprehensive guide to the design of control rooms including the control building, physical aspects of the control room, working environment, console design, and control system graphics. Emerging issues are covered such as devices used outside of the control room, security and there is a stronger focus on human factors. The aim of the new edition is to provide improved guidance to people involved in the design of control rooms, both during new-build and modification projects as well as evaluating existing control rooms.

EEMUA 201 relates to human-computer interface (HCI) systems provided for people operating industrial processes and activities on facilities such as chemical plant, power stations and oil refineries. HCI systems are one of a number of key areas that can influence - and optimise - human performance in the area of a centralised control room, so important in maintaining process and major hazard safety. EEMUA 201 gives guidance on: the factors to take into account when designing an HCI; display hierarchies; screen display format design; and control room design attributes which affect HCIs. It is for use by engineers and managers in both user and contracting organisations. The objective is not only to make plants more operable, efficient and able to avoid abnormal situations, but to be able to better manage such situations should they occur.

EEMUA 201 is not a standard and is not intended to replace any. Designers will be expected to identify and adhere to any standards and regulations and any company and project specifications. The intention is that EEMUA 201 will provide guidance on how this can be achieved in the most effective way.

EEMUA Publication 205 A Guide to the production testing of valves for the energy, process and related industries

Version: Digital/PDF

If you are a user from an EEMUA member company, please log in and download your complimentary digital edition here.

EEMUA 205 sets out recommended production tests to be applied to the main types of valve used in the energy, process and related industries: ball, plug, gate, butterfly and globe. It is a common assumption that valve test and product standards contain all that is required to ensure adequate performance, but this is not always the case. By adopting the tests specified here, EEMUA expects that the user’s requirements will be better fulfilled, particularly for critical services.
