scope:

This document is intended to provide pipeline operators with recommended industry practices in the development, implementation, and maintenance of an alarm management program. It provides guidance on elements that include, but are not limited to, alarm definition, philosophy, documentation, management of change, and auditing.

This document is not intended to be a step-by-step set of instructions on how to build an alarm management system. Each pipeline operator has a unique operating philosophy and will therefore have a unique alarm philosophy as well. This document is intended to outline key elements for review when building an alarm management system.

SCADA systems used within the pipeline industry vary in their alarm-related capabilities. There are also many different software systems available to aid in alarm management. It is the responsibility of the pipeline operator to determine the best method to achieve their alarm management goals.

This document uses industry best practices to help to illustrate aspects of alarm management. The scope is intended to be broad. There are several publications and standards listed in Section 2 and the Bibliography that provide greater detail on the various elements of alarm management. Pipeline operators are encouraged to consult these publications.
