Scope of application for verification
This specification may be adopted for the verification of parts of process facilities or selected project phases.
Process facilities typically comprise the following systems:
- process safety functions
- pressure relieving devices
- blowdown and flare system
- HIPPS system
- utility systems
- pressure vessels (not covered by this SE (service specification))
- passive fire protection
- active fire protection
- HVAC systems
- fire and gas detection systems
- shutdown systems
- process equipment
- hazardous area classification.
which are applied in various configurations and tailored to each particular project's specific requirements.
This specification describes the principles of a levelled verification involvement. These principles may be applied both for planning of any need or obligations for independent external verification (third party) as well as internal company verification (second party).
