If you own a pipeline used to transfer hazardous chemicals, you are responsible for all the risks associated with it.
If your pipeline carries certain chemicals and crosses a public place, the builder of the pipeline must let us know the owner’s/operator’s name, the specifications of the pipeline, how it will be used and maintained, and the intended emergency procedures. We need to be told this information before the pipeline is commissioned, before chemicals are put into it, and if it is repaired or no longer used.
The operator of the pipeline is responsible for ensuring it is properly labelled and sign-posted. They must also let us know the correct classification of the chemical, and the names of the supplier and receiver.
