COP 1 Part 3 is a comprehensive guide to examination and testing of bulk storage vessels. The Code gives guidance on statutory inspections and examinations, and provides examples of how to develop a Written Scheme of Examination.  

Examination and inspection principles are adequately covered and include topics such as vessel entry, permits to work and Cathodic Protection systems. The Code also covers the inspection of ancillary equipment such as Vaporisers, Safety Devices and Pipework.
