The official 30-day comment period for PEI/RP1300 closed on Nov. 22, 2019, and all comments submitted are now being considered by the RP1300 committee.
The PEI Aviation Fueling Committee developed Recommended Practices for the Design, Installation, Service, Repair and Maintenance of Aviation Fueling Systems, PEI/RP1300.
The document is a response to requests from fixed base operators, equipment manufacturers and service and repair contractors for a single authoritative source of information for the design, installation, service, repair and maintenance of aviation fueling systems.
The intent of the document is to provide recommendations that will: promote the proper design, construction and safe operation of fueling systems; minimize the possibility of fueling system failure; avoid practices that will unnecessarily increase installation costs; and minimize environmental impacts and hazards.
The recommended practices in the publication are limited to those relating to design, installation, service, repair and maintenance of aircraft fueling systems located at aviation fuel provider facilities. It does not cover the design or operation of hydrant systems or ground equipment fueling systems for fuel distribution.
Single-copy price is $50 for PEI members; $195 for nonmembers.
