What is a tracked changes standard?

A tracked changes version of a Standard indicates the changes made, during the standards revision process, between the active standard and its previous version. Additions, deletions, and other formatting and/or content revisions are clearly displayed as underlined and strikethrough texts, ensuring all changes made between the two documents are quickly and easily identified. This version of the standard includes both a copy of the new standard, along with a track changes version.

What is this published document about?

This is a tracked changes version of an international standard which gives the best available, state-of-the-art guidance on avoiding ignition and electrostatic shock hazards caused by static electricity. The tracked changes highlight the differences between the 2015 standard and this 2018 revision.

Who is this published document for?

It’s relevant across numerous markets, including aviation, manufacturing, oil and gas, and flooring companies. Specific users will be: Manufacturers of electrical equipment for use in Ex atmospheresTesting houses Chemical plants Gas works/distributors Engineering companies/engineers/electrical engineersInsurance companiesJudicial system.

Why should you use this published document?

It sets out guidance and operational requirements on the necessary equipment, product and process properties to avoid ignition and electrostatic shock hazards caused by static electricity.

It provides recommendations on how to deal with the unwelcome side effects of static electricity. By following and fulfilling the recommendations given an acceptably low level of static electricity can be achieved. 

The standard also details how to proceed if the requirements cannot be fulfilled. Alternative approaches have been outlined that can be applied to achieve the same level of safety.

What’s changed since the last update?

This tracked changes edition shows the differences between the 2015 standard and the 2018 version. The major change is that the sources and nature of the most commonly occurring problems associated with static electricity in industrial processes and environments are identified and specific recommendations made, including on the handling of solids, liquids, powders, gases, sprays and explosives. There are also new sections focusing on:

  • Special requirements for equipment according to IEC 60079-0
  • Electrostatic charges on external non-metallic materials
  • Electrostatic charges on external conductive parts
