The recent change to the Classification, Labelling and Packaging (CLP) regulations raises the flashpoint of what is considered flammable from 55 to 60 degrees. (Anything with a flashpoint under this temperature is considered flammable.) So as a flammable substance, diesel is now covered by the Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations (DSEAR).
It is recommended therefore that all fleet operators with depot fuelling facilities should carry out a further risk assessment to benchmark their installation against these latest regulations.
Subject to the assessors’ findings, it may be deemed that some elements of the depot installation may be subject to ATEX conformity standards.
Fleet operators proposing to install Merridale fuel pumps and Merridale integral units (with fuel management) should not be concerned, as these are already compliant with the new specification.
A low cost upgrade is available to bring existing Merridale installations in line with the latest requirements.
