BS 6739:2009 Code of practice for instrumentation in process control systems: installation design and practice

BS 6739:2009 gives recommendations for, and guidance on, the design for the installation of instrumentation of measurement and control systems in the process industry, and the implementation and commissioning of this installation. It is intended to be used as a manual of good practice on the site and also to assist those who design the installation.

This is a full revision of the standard, and introduces the following principal changes:

  • existing recommendations brought up to date to reflect changes in workplace practice and technology
  • new recommendations added to take into account technology introduced since 1986
  • guidance on legislation brought up to date to reflect regulations and directives introduced since 1986.

BS 6739 contains guidance on:

  • Normative references
  • Terms, definitions and abbreviations
  • Personnel safety
  • Instrumentation in hazardous areas
  • Documentation
  • Process sensors and measuring devices
  • Communication
  • Pollution prevention and control
  • Regulating devices
  • Pneumatic and hydraulic supply systems
  • Safety‑related instrumentation
  • Control room, associated equipment rooms and electronic systems
  • Instrument piping and tubing
  • Instrument cabling
  • Earthing
  • Electrical power supply systems
  • Installation
  • Testing and verification
  • Commissioning and acceptance.

BS 6739:2009 supersedes BS 6739:1986, which is withdrawn.
