"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.
Since the publication of the revised Acetylene Code of Practice in 2012, a number of changes have been made to incorporate comments from EIGA member companies.
The document is intended for all personnel who are involved in any aspect relating to acetylene in the industrial gases industry."
