NTP Truboprovod offers services on carrying out of industrial safety expert review of documentation and technical devices used at hazardous industrial facilities.

Changes to legislation:

From January 1, 2014 a public service of issuing permits to use technical devices at hazardous industrial facilities has been cancelled, on the basis of changes to the Federal Law No.116-F dated 21.07.1997 "On Industrial Safety of Hazardous Industrial Facilities.

Regulatory documents

All activities concerning industrial safety expert review of hazardous industrial facilities are subject to the Federal Law No.116-F dated 21.07.1997 "On Industrial Safety of Hazardous Industrial Facilities" and the Federal law No. 184-3 dated 27.12.2002 "About Technical Regulation.

Procedure for carrying out of industrial safety expert review, requirements for its execution, as well as requirements to experts in the area of industrial safety, are established by:

  • Federal rules and regulations in the area of industrial safety, Procedure for carrying out of industrial safety expert review in chemical, petrochemical and oil and gas processing industry approved by the Order No.584 dated October 15, 2012 of the Federal Service for Ecological, Technological and Nuclear Supervision;
  • Federal codes and regulations in the area of industrial safety Rules of carrying out of industrial safety expert review approved by the Order No.538 dated November 14, 2013 of the Federal Service for Ecological, Technological and Nuclear Supervision.

NTP Truboprovod is entitled to carry out industrial safety expert review of oil-and-gas extraction and major pipeline transport facilities, pressure equipment, thermal plants and networks, petrochemical and refining facilities, gas distribution and gas consumption, explosive, chemically hazardous and special chemistry facilities, based on RTN License N DE 00-005576 dated 21.06.2005 (perpetual license).

Expert review of industrial safety shall be carried out for the following documents and items:

  • Documentation for conservation and elimination of hazardous industrial facility;
  • Documentation for re-equipment of hazardous industrial facility, if the above documentation is not included in the design (project) documentation for such facility, and which is subject to the expert review, in accordance with the law on urban planning;
  • Technical devices used at hazardous industrial facilities, as established by Article 7 of the Russian Federal law No. 116-F dated July 21, 1997;
  • Buildings and structures at hazardous industrial facility designed for implementation of process technologies, storage of raw materials or products, transferring of people and goods, elimination of emergencies and accident management;
  • Declaration of industrial safety developed as part of the documentation for technical upgrading (if specified documentation is not included in the design (project) documentation for hazardous industrial facilities subject to expert review, in accordance with the law on urban planning), conservation, elimination of hazardous production industrial , or newly developed declaration of industrial safety;
  • Substantiation of safety of hazardous industrial facilities, as well as changes introduced in such substantiation.

Expert review results

The result of industrial safety expert review is expert conclusion.

The expert conclusion shall be submitted by the customer to the Rostekhnadzor Local Administration for registration, in accordance with the administrative rules, within five (5) working days from the date of its receipt. Expert conclusion of industrial security can be used for the purposes established by the Federal Law No 116-FZ dated July 21, 1997, only from the date of its registration.



Industrial safety expert review of documentation for hazardous industrial facilities (conservation, liquidation, re-equipment).

1) Documentation for conservation and liquidation of hazardous industrial facilities, as well as changes introduced in the appropriate documents, are subject to expert review of industrial safety.

2) Documentation for re-equipment of hazardous industrial facility, as well as changes introduced in the design (project) documentation for building and renovation of the hazardous industrial facility, if the above documentation is not included in the design (project) documentation for such facility, which is subject to the expert review, in accordance with the Russian law on urban planning.

Any technical upgrading, conservation and liquidation of hazardous industrial facility is not allowed without prior positive industrial safety expert conclusion, which shall be entered in the register of industrial safety expert conclusion in the prescribed manner, or if the documentation for technical upgrading of hazardous industrial facility is included in the design (project) documentation for such a facility, without positive industrial safety expert conclusion for that facility.

Performance of works on industrial safety expert review

NTP Truboprovod experts have a wide experience in fulfilment of the relevant work. Qualification of specialists is proved by expert certificates, in accordance with "Rules of certification of experts" (SDA-12-2009).

You can find below examples of our works on expert review of documentation for technical upgrading:

  • Krasnodarskiy NPZ-KEN (refinery) ZAO: revamping of tanks;
  • Tuapse Kemoil ZAO: retrofitting of steam protection of heater coil and unit AT-2;
  • Danone Industry OOO, Noviye Lyubuchany: Extension of ammonia refrigeration plant for manufacture of dairy products;
  • Rosneft-Tuapse Refinery (NK Rosneft Tuapsinskiy NPZ OAO): Renovation of liquefied gases storage and off-plot facilities (flare system);
  • TAIF OAO, Kazan: Adaptation of isopentane dehydrogenation unit to catalytic cracking process; off-site facilities of the catalytic cracker;
  • GAZPROMNEFT-MNPZ OAO: Modernization of reactor -201 of catalyst cracker.

In case we detect non-conformity of design solutions or equipment to the Russian standards of industrial safety, NTP Truboprovod develops a substantiation of safety with a set of corrective measures and organizes in Rostekhnadzor (RTN) a consideration of these measures with taking by RTN a decision on permit for specific operating conditions.

Industrial safety expert review of technical devices used at hazardous industrial facilities

Mandatory requirements to technical devices used at hazardous industrial facilities, and forms of their evaluation for conformity to such mandatory requirements are set in accordance with the Russian legislation on technical regulation.

If no other form of conformity evaluation of the technical device used at hazardous industrial facility is specified, then it is subject to carrying out of industrial safety expert review:

  1. Before use at hazardous industrial facility;
  2. At the end of service life, or when exceeding the number of load cycles for such technical device established by its manufacturer;
  3. If there is no information in the technical documentation about service life of such technical device, if the actual service life is more than twenty (20) years;
  4. Upon completion of works related to redesign of the technical device, substitution of material of its bearing elements, or complete renovation after an accident or incident at hazardous industrial facility, in consequence of which such technical device was damaged.

Safe operation of technical devices can be extended in accordance with Order No. 195 dated 30.06.2009 issued by the Russian Ministry of Natural Resources and Ecology "Approval for extension of the safe operation period for technical devices, equipment and facilities at hazardous industrial facilities" (registered by the Russian Ministry of Justice on 28.09.2009 , registration number 14894).
