How can you get specific advice
The UKOPA Emergency Planning Workgroup (EPWG) will provide advice and information for any specific query, for example:-

  • Advice on area-specific multi-party testing of emergency plans which aligns with current proposals for multiagency communication and response strategies required for the Civil Contingencies Act.
  • Information on the role and responsibilities of the Pipeline Emergency Response Officer (PERO) – the first operator representative in response to a pipeline incident.
  • Pipeline Emergency planning and hazard distances.
  • Training and competency requirements for pipeline emergency response.
