Heavy fuel oil regulations in force

The HID policy team at the Health and Safety Executive has announced that the Heavy Fuel Oil (Amendment) Regulations 2014 have been made and laid.

The regulations, which can be viewed at www.legislation.gov.uk/id/uksi/2014/162 came into force on Thursday 20th February 2014.

These regulations amend the Control of Major Accident Hazards Regulations 1999 (COMAH), which apply across Great Britain. They also amend relevant planning law in England, in relation to which they also include transitional arrangements. The Scottish and Welsh governments are addressing planning considerations within their own planning regimes.

The COMAH Competent Authority has published guidance on heavy fuel oil – www.hse.gov.uk/comah/guidance/hfo-guidance.htm
