EI Model Code of Safe Practice Part 2: Guidance on the design, construction and operation of petroleum distribution installations has been developed to provide guidance and good practice in the layout, design and construction of distribution installations and their equipment. It also provides certain information on the operation of such installations, but is not intended to be comprehensive in this regard.

This Model Code provides recommendations and good practice. It is stressed that design and construction of plant and equipment should be carried out by experienced people and that, in making provisions for safety, due consideration should be given to the effect of any unusual circumstances, on which it is impossible to generalise. It is not intended that the recommendations in this Model Code should be applied rigidly to existing premises, where for a variety of reasons it may not be practicable to implement them.

It is primarily intended for use by those involved in the layout, design, construction and operation of new distribution installations, and those undergoing significant redevelopment. It is not meant to be a definitive guide to risk assessment techniques which are required within the context of the planning, design and construction stages of distribution installations. It assumes the reader has experience in this area and, when required, should follow up on the references given for risk assessment methodologies in the relevant sections.
