The EIGA Acetylene Code of Practice covers the basic requirements for the safe design and maintenance of acetylene plants as well as customer installations.

It also includes recommendations for the supply, storage, transport and use of acetylene cylinders, bundles and trailers.

The purpose of the publication is to provide a comprehensive guide to acetylene that can be used with other documents such as European Standards, company standards and equipment instructions to assist those involved with all aspects of acetylene.

The document is intended for all personnel who are involved in any aspect relating to acetylene in the industrial gases industry.

The previous publication had become very large and for the review of it, it will be split in separate publications on different topics. Step by step parts will be taken out, reviewed and published. The final review of this document will be done once all other sub publications are finalised.
