Management of Change (MOC) process forms an important element of a Process Safety Management System as well as other management systems. The introduction of any change to a process, process equipment, or component and associated premises, if not appropriately managed, can significantly increase the levels of personal, environmental, security, reliability and process safety risk or impact product quality. Management shall ensure that risks arising from any form of change are systematically identified, assessed and managed.
Changes that are subject to a MOC process should be detailed in a company procedure.
This publication provides guidance for EIGA members on how to establish a MOC process and describes the relevant roles in this process.
Organisational change is not covered by this publication.
