Safety requirements and process (safety distances internal / external)

Safety requirements and process (safety distances internal / external)

This LAP analyses, in general, the safety requirements (regulations and standards) associated with the approval of HRS. In particular, this LAP looks at the general rules applicable to an HRS (e.g. permitting regime, agreement) apart from the land use planning, including but not limited to:
a) environmental assessment (e.g.: emissions (IED), noise, etc.)
b) risk assessment
c) technical, including internal/external safety distances safety requirements
d) Personnel safety requirements

The LAP also explores whether it is allowed to install an HRS indoors (for example for forklifts) as well as the additional requirements applicable when an HRS is installed indoors.

d - Personnel safety requirements
e - others
Is it allowed to install and HRS inside for example for forklifts? Is there any additional requirements when you install the HRS inside? If yes, what are the legal requirement? Did they hamper you to install them inside? What are the main requirements with their applicable regulations for building an HRS (e.g. permitting regime, agreement) apart from the land use planning? Please list them including:
Is it a barrier? Yes
Type of Barrier Regulatory gap, Structural barrier
Assessment Severity
2
Assessment As there is no specific regulation for H2 HRS, there are no standard safety distances witch can be predetermined during the planning phase.

The regulatory gap for H2 HRS has different major consequences:
– there is no standardised approach by the administration for the interpretation of the applicable regulation;
– every new HRS project is treated on a case by case basis;
– there is a “planning risk” for the operator;
– the authorisation procedure could be long for HRS with on–site production (12 to 16 month).
