About Bequinor

BEQUINOR (National Association for Normalisation of Capital Goods and Industrial Safety) is a not-for-profit association with over 50 years of history at the service of Industrial Safety, the main pillars of which are technical regulation, normalisation and training. Its work is mainly technical, collaborating with the Government on the production and amendment of technical safety regulations and training professionals with the aim to improve safety in industrial processes and to thus minimise risks to people, to the environment and to facilities. It is also the Technical Secretariat for the normalisation of industrial capital goods, pressure equipment, chemical product storage and regulatory inspection of chemical product storage.

Specifically, in the aspects pertaining to the regulation of petrol facilities, BEQUINOR coordinates a technical Commission that currently takes care of the analysis and exchange of information regarding questions on the interpretation of the new ITC. Among its members, BEQUINOR has industry experts with technical specialisation in different areas, however, all of them are affected by this regulation. The expert knowledge held by BEQUINOR companies is an asset that is valued and taken into consideration by the Government. The Technical Commission on Petrol Facilities is a forum comprised of BEQUINOR members, but it is open to listening to other industry agents who are interested in contributing with their knowledge and experience.

Within the scope of sector normalisation, BEQUINOR acts as Secretariat for the Committees: CTN 62/SC5 Tanks and deposits (except LPG) and CTN 109 Safety in the storage, handling and processes with chemical products, competent on many of the rules cited within the regulations on petrol facilities, among others, those pertaining to the manufacture and installation of tanks, leak detection systems and equipment for service stations.
