11 knowledge, skills and good practice The Standard recognises the concept of ‘Alternative Means of Conformance’ with 1530 requirements and provides definition of the process to be followed The working group is developing a gap assessment tool/checklist to facilitate self-assessment of conformance (against the mandatory requirements) Petro2013

12 knowledge, skills and good practice EI Research Report EI Research Report: A qualitative assessment of electrostatic risks in jet fuel handling and distribution, August 2013 Detailed study contracted to Shell Global Solutions, with input from Dr Harold Walmsley, Dr Stephen Hall and conductivity additive suppliers. Draft circulated in 2012 for peer review. Findings presented to UK MoD Aviation Fuels Committee, March 2013, IATA Technical Fuel Forum, May 2013 and Coordinating Research Council, May 2013 Offers a scientific explanation for the lack of ignition incidents in regions that do not mandate the use of SDA – either insufficient energy in brush discharges, insufficient flammable vapour, or both Petro2013
