    This publication:

    -                      Provides technical guidance on the storage and dispensing of petroleum products including petrol, diesel, autogas (also known as LPG) and biofuels (blends of petrol or diesel containing up to 10 % biomass derived component), used as fuels for motor vehicles, primarily at filling stations to which the general public have access.


    -                      Covers civil, mechanical, hydraulic and electrical installation issues for the planning, design, construction, commissioning, modification, maintenance and decommissioning of filling stations.


    -                      Provides information aimed at minimizing the risks from fire and explosion, to safety, health and to the environment.


    -                      Describes good practice and certain legal requirements, particularly those applicable in the UK.


    -                      Is primarily intended to be applicable to both new sites and existing sites that are modified/refurbished. The guidance should also be useful in providing a benchmark to assist the duty-holder to undertake periodic review of their risk assessment(s) required under specific legislation applying to the facilities.


    -                      Provides general principles that may be applicable to other types of installation where fuels are stored and dispensed for non-retail use.
