EIGA Document 80 describes the special requirements and techniques used in handling emergencies involving gas containers.
It is intended to be a practical guide for the use of technically competent and trained practitioners.
In the frame of the 5-year review programme, Working Group 4 “Special Gases” has revised the 2008 edition of Document 80.
New guidance on the use of the “cylinder recovery vessel” has been added together with several editorial changes.
The changes are listed after the table of contents and identified in the text.
