The Australian Pipelines and Gas Association are seeking members of the utility industry to review the new Pipeline Engineer Competency Standards.
The competency standards create a framework to enable understanding, assessment and documentation of competency for pipeline engineers and are developed by panels of industry experts.
The standard will assist companies in assessing whether their pipeline engineers meet the description of competent person in Australian Standard AS 2885 when key decisions are required in designing, constructing and operating pipelines.
Eighteen newly detailed or revised competency standards have been included in this new release, all from the onshore pipelines sector.
APGA hopes to receive comments and suggestions from the broadest possible sector of the industry.
The review period will close on Friday 1 April 2016.
