201307JanAll DayCDOIF: Guidance on ‘Other Products in Scope of PSLG’PSF Learning Brief 003 Origin: PSF Language:EN TagsLeadership


The Chemical and Downstream Oil Industries Forum (CDOIF)1 has recently published guidance to help duty holders assess other substances which may give rise to a large flammable vapour cloud following the overfilling of a bulk storage tank.

The final report of the Process Safety Leadership Groups (PSLG) safety and environmental standards for fuel storage sites was published in December 2009. Since publication, duty holders have been completing detailed risk quantification against the guidance provided in the report, for the scenario of over topping a finished gasoline tank which has the same or similar characteristics as tank 912 at Buncefield (as defined in paragraph 24 of the PSLG report)
