IGEM/GL/4 Edition 2
Gas system assets - risk management
IGE/GL/4 Edition 1 (entitled Management and Audit Procedures)
has been superseded by IGEM/GL/4 Edition 2.
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
- Legal considerations such as Gas Safety (Installation and Use)
- Framework of a management system
- Planning and implementation
- Monitoring performance
- 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.
