Revised Version of BS 10175 Published

The amendment is consequential to the publication of BS 8576 and the planned revision of BS 5930.

The main changes are:


  • BS 8576 is made “normative” in BS 10175. All investigations for ground gas should be made in accordance with BS 8576. Detailed guidance has been removed from BS 10175 and replaced by references to BS 8576.
  • References to BS 5930 have been simplified so that they now refer to whatever version of BS 5930 is current. The changes will have no practical impact until a revised version of BS 5930 is published (this probably won’t be until 1915).
  • Annex I on the regulatory background is deleted and replaced by a reference to Annex A in BS 8576.
  • Annex E is also deleted – also replaced by a reference to BS 8576.

Copies of the amended version should be available from the BSI bookshop at a preferred rate for regulators as for the original version and BS 8576. If there are any difficulties in this respect please contact the Secretary of BS Committee EH4 Jessy Matthews (This email address is being protected from spambots.
