Give information to the manufacturer

You must give the manufacturer:

  • the design specifications of your plant
  • information that will enable the plant to be manufactured in accordance with the design specifications
  • information about installing, commissioning, decommissioning, using, handling, storing and dismantling it
  • information about hazards and risks that could arise
  • enough calculations, analysis, testing or examinations to enable the plant to be manufactured safely
  • information about testing, inspections, systems of work, operator competencies and emergency procedures
  • information about the plant’s purpose and any conditions necessary to operate the plant properly.

If the manufacturer identifies a hazard for which there is no control measure, you must revise your information to ensure the risks have been minimised or, better still, eliminated – or let the manufacturer know in writing that no change is required.
