ISO 13702-2015 pdf free.Petroleum and natural gas industries – Control and mitigation of fires and explosions on offshore production installations – Requirements and guidelines.
ISO 13702 describes the objectives and functional requirements for the control and mitigation of fires and explosions on offshore installations used for the development of hydrocarbon resources.
This International Standard is applicable to the following:
— fixed offshore structures;
— floating systems for production, storage, and offloading;
— petroleum and natural gas industries.
Mobile offshore units as defined in this International Standard and subsea installations are excluded, although many of the principles contained in this International Standard can be used as guidance. This International Standard is based on an approach where the selection of control and mitigation measures for fires and explosions is determined by an evaluation of hazards on the offshore installation. The methodologies employed in this assessment and the resultant recommendations will differ depending on the complexity of the production process and facilities, type of facility (i.e. open or enclosed), manning levels, and environmental conditions associated with the area of operation.
NOTE Statutory requirements, rules, and regulations can, in addition, be applicable for the individual offshore installation concerned.

5 Fire and explosion evaluation and risk management
5.1 Management system
All companies associated with the offshore recovery of hydrocarbons shall have, or conduct their activities in accordance with, an effective management system which addresses environmental issues such as described in ISO 14001 or similar (for example, operators should have an effective management, contractors should have either their own management system or conduct their activities consistently with the operators management system) and additionally addresses issues relating to health and safety. One key element of such management systems shall be a process of evaluation and risk management which shall take place in a framework which provides the policies, procedures, and organizational arrangements that will embed risk management throughout the organization.
5.2 Risk assessment and the risk management framework
This International Standard assumes that the risk assessment is performed within the principles and guidelines for risk management described in ISO 31000.
In particular, those carrying out risk assessments shall be clear about the following:
a) organization’s risk management policy, its objectives, and the context in which the organization operates;
b) extent and type of risks that are tolerable and how to treat any risks that are deemed not to be tolerable;
c) how risk assessment integrates into organizational processes;
d) methods and techniques to be used for risk assessment and their contribution to the risk management process;
e) accountability, both for performing risk assessment and for making decisions taking account of the results;
f) resources required to carry out risk assessment;
g) how the risk assessment will be reported and reviewed.ISO 13702 pdf free download.
