Blue book supplement coverThis publication provides guidance for companies that provide hydrogen for the refuelling of motor vehicles and for authorities responsible for granting permits and supervising these companies when co-location with petrol filling stations (PFSs) is proposed.

It provides a summary of technical guidance for the design, construction, maintenance and management of hydrogen fuelling stations in relation to their interaction with PFSs when the two facilities are co-located, ensuring an acceptable level of protection for public safety, health and the environment for both facilities.

It gives a summary of regulations, requirements, criteria and conditions based on current industry good practice as reflected in British Compressed Gases Association, (BCGA) CoP CP 41: The design, construction, maintenance and operation of filling stations dispensing gaseous fuels and links the specific requirements for hydrogen refuelling with current industry guidance relating to PFSs. As such, it supplements the APEA/EI Blue Book – Design, construction, modification, maintenance and decommissioning of petrol filling stations.

This publication is produced jointly by the Association for Petroleum and Explosives Administration (APEA), British Compressed Gases Association (BCGA) and the Service station panel of the Energy Institute (EI).
