Gas system assets - risk management

IGEM/GL/4 Edition 2 (entitled Management and Audit Procedures) has been superseded by IGEM/GL/4 Edition 3.

The scope of the document has been broadened from being just one for a safety management system to one covering the management of all types of risk associated with gas system assets. Risks include those associated with quality, the environment and safety.

This standard specifies a framework for risk management of assets associated with gas systems. It covers all activities including design, installation, operation, maintenance, management and providing an emergency service on the assets associated with gas systems. It applies to all fuel gases and is based on HSG65 but with further requirements to make it gas-specific. It contains details of:

  • Legal considerations such as Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations
  • Framework of a management system
  • Policy
  • Organising
  • Planning and implementation
  • Monitoring performance
  • Auditing
  • Reviewing performance

Due to the change in scope from Edition 1 to Edition 2 there have been many changes to the Sections covering Policy, Planning and Implementing, Auditing and Performance Review.
