Safety Case Guidelines – Natural Gas and LPG Licensed Undertakings

Consultation Open

The CRU has today, 28 September 2018, published a Consultation Paper on Gas Safety Regulatory Framework for Ireland – Gas Safety Case Guidelines for Natural Gas & LPG Licensed Undertakings.

The key change to the Guidelines is the incorporation of the use of Renewable Natural Gas (RNG) in natural gas transmission and distribution networks by updating Part D and Part E of the Guidelines. No amendments are required in Part F to accommodate the shipping/supplying of RNG to final customers. The opportunity was also taken to update details in relation to CNG supplier undertakings in Part I.

Other minor amendments to the Guidelines include:
• Updates to reflect CRU’s name change from CER to CRU and respective document formatting.
• Clarifications and removal of duplicated text through the Guidelines.

Comments on this consultation paper should be sent to Aidan O’Connor, available at GSFteam@cru.ie, by 17:00 on 31 October 2018.

The CER published Gas Safety Regulatory Framework for Ireland on 5 May 2017  – Gas Safety Case Guidelines for Natural Gas & LPG Licensed Undertakings V 3.0.
These revised Safety Case Guidelines are prepared to assist gas undertakings in the development of their gas safety cases and material changes for submission to the CER. The Decision & Response to Comments Paper published alongside these Guidelines sets out the CER’s decision to Consultation Paper CER/16/367 along with a summary of responses received to that paper and the CER’s response to these comments.
