The experience accumulated throughout the application of Royal Decree 948/2003 has shown the need to update the provisions relating to the periodic control regime to which internal washing or degassing and depressurisation facilities are subject, as well as those for the repair or modification of dangerous goods tanks, with the aim of ensuring their compliance with the provisions required of these facilities by the regulations.

In addition, the standard is intended to adapt the terminology relating to repairs and modifications, as well as the procedures to be followed to carry out these operations, to the requirements of the regulations in force on the inspection of tanks included in the different modal agreements on the international transport of dangerous goods (ADR, RID, etc.).

Finally, it is necessary to review the technical requirements for these installations in order to adapt them to technological evolution and the current regulatory framework, also helping to guarantee safety and environmental protection.

The main objective of this standard is to incorporate the improvements identified since the entry into force of Royal Decree 948/2003, also aligning the requirements with the applicable regulations on the transport of dangerous goods.
