Code of practice for handling, storage and processing of combustible dust


Aims to provide a comprehensive procedure on the handling, storage and processing of combustible dust to prevent and mitigate fires and dust explosions in facilities handling such materials.

Aid users in the assessment of dust fire and explosion hazards and the mitigation of those hazards through facility design, equipment/process control measures, elimination of ignition sources and minimising damage.

Is applicable to industries (e.g. food processing, woodworking factories, pharmaceutical, petrochemical, specialty chemicals, additive manufacturing, and logistics), research institutions and institutes of higher learning (IHL) that manufacture, process, blend, convey, repackage, generate or handle combustible dusts or combustible particulate solids. Is not applicable for warehousing of sealed containers of such materials when not associated with an operation that handles or generates combustible dust.
