SNZ AS/NZS 2885.6
Pipelines-Gas and liquid petroleum Part 6: Pipeline safety management
|Publication Date:||3 December 2018|
This Standard specifies the SAFETY MANAGEMENT PROCESS for PIPELINE SYSTEMS and covers all elements of the system designed, constructed or operated under the AS(/NZS) 2885 series of Standards, including MAINLINE PIPE and PIPELINE ASSEMBLIES, STATIONS and control systems.
As safety management is a continuous process, this Standard applies throughout the life cycle of a PIPELINE SYSTEM from design to abandonment.
This Standard does not apply to workplace health and safety, construction safety, or environmental impacts other than resulting from a FAILURE EVENT, as other parts of the AS(/NZS) 2885 series contain specific requirements relevant to these areas.
NOTE: The APGA Code of Environmental Practice provides industry accepted guidance on environmental management through the planning and asset acquisition, construction, operational and decommissioning phases of a pipeline's lifecycle.
