Liquid Gas UK have published their latest revision to CP 7.


Code of Practice 7 has recently been updated and details the safety standards for the storage of full and nominally empty LPG cylinders and cartridges.

CP 7 is of particular relevance to depots, stockists, retailers, service station forecourts and any other premises involved in the storage of LPG cylinders and cartridges.

In the latest update guidance has been given on safe stacking and storing of cylinders which includes recommended quantities for vertical stacking and advice on DSEAR Regulation for LPG cylinder storage areas.

CP 7 contains six comprehensive sections and the information is applicable to all types of LPG cylinder. As well as general storage there are sections on displaying LPG cylinders within retail environments, and also on vehicles and trailers.

You will find the safety information required for visual signposting in order to make the area safe for members of the public, as well as fire precautions and emergency procedures to follow should an accident occur.
