Specialist good practice resources for Electrical, Instrumentation, Control and Cyber Security
EEMUA’s resources for Industrial Engineering are developed ‘by industry, for industry’ as practical aids for engineers in their work and as they work – wherever they are, whatever time they have.
The portfolio of good practice resources for Electrical, Instrumentation, Control and Cyber Security is collected and shared through a range of publications, training and events, including…
This first edition of EEMUA Publication 227: provides a coherent, proactive system for managing ageing electrical assets; focuses on types of electrical equipment that lack other guidance or suffer an increase in incidents related to ageing; and offers general guidance on managing ageing electrical assets.
The equipment types covered are: Uninterruptable power supplies and Battery systems; Electrical drives; Electrical protection devices; Power cables; Switchgear (HV and LV); and Transformers.
Guidance includes: identifying potential failure mechanisms on ageing electrical assets; methods of detecting early signs of failure mechanisms; ways of calculating remaining expected life of electrical assets; maintenance methods to extend electrical asset life; demonstrating benefits of replacing equipment before failures occur.

EEMUA 191 gives comprehensive guidance on designing, managing and procuring both new alarm systems (during plant construction) and improving existing installations (during refurbishment) to contribute to plant safety, efficiency and compliance.
Developed by alarm systems experts and users working on high hazard sites, and with GB Health and Safety Executive input, EEMUA 191 is: informed by real-world process safety experiences; acknowledged as good practice by regulators; applies to alarm systems for industrial processes in chemical manufacture, power generation, oil and gas extraction, refining and other sectors such as rail, transport and nuclear.
Aligned with international standards ISA 18.2 and IEC 62682: 2015, EEMUA 191 Guidance covers applications in geographically distributed processes, performance metrics and KPIs.

EEMUA 246 provides guidance on managing the ignition risks of Ex electrical equipment located in hazardous areas arising from flammable vapours and gases.
Mapped against a Safety management system (SMS) framework, EEMUA 246 guidance provides an electrical equipment sampling methodology to complement an RBI inspection process that uses As Low As Reasonably Practicable (ALARP) principles.

EEMUA 186 offers guidance for safe installation, inspection and maintenance work in potentially explosive atmospheres where failure to adopt safe working practices could result in electrical and mechanical sources igniting flammable gases or combustible dusts.
The guide interprets relevant parts of standards (in particular the fifth (2013) editions of IEC 60079-14 and 60079-17) and brings them together in a clear, understandable and easily navigable resource.

EEMUA 241 is a practical guide that provides a structured approach for site personnel supervising and managing the presence and use of portable self-energised electrical and electronic devices on a day-to-day basis within areas with potentially explosive atmospheres including: vapours and mists – such as petroleum products; gases – such as hydrogen; and combustible dusts – such as food products and cement.
