This document provides guidance on in-service management of passive fire protection coatings that have been applied to components such as fire barriers, key structural elements and items of process equipment to provide a predetermined level of protection from a given fire and/or explosion event.

Guidance provided within this publication aims to assist the operator to identify the major elements required to build an effective strategy for the management of PFP systems for a typical oil and gas production facility, in order to maintain the required performance standard for each application during its entire life cycle.

The guidance includes information on the principal activities associated with developing management strategies and implementation of good practice in the areas of condition survey, damage criteria, damage assessment, and the planning of remedial campaigns.

This guideline will be of use to operations and integrity managers, corrosion engineers, technicians, contractors, inspectors, and all parties concerned with the maintenance and remediation of PFP coating systems, for both offshore and onshore oil and gas facilities.
