Why UKOPA will provide information to Planners and Developers

The codes and standards require that QRAs are carried out by experienced and competent personnel, and UKOPA will respond to requests from Planners and Developers for information and advice so that the recommendations of the codes and standards are applied in a consistent manner for all MAHPs, irrespective of the product transported. This information and advice relates to the application of the recommended methodology and the use of risk mitigation measures. In the first instance the Planner or Developer should contact the relevant pipeline operator.

UKOPA will aim to ensure that current operator best practice is made available to assist Planners and Developers in ensuring safe developments in the vicinity of MAHPs.
