  1. Page updated to advise that this guide should be read in conjunction with the Fire prevention plan consultation: summary of consultation responses and decisions, and Appendix 1: review of guidance and test results. Reading these documents in conjunction with the guidance will explain what an operator needs to demonstrate to meet the relevant objectives and also the level of evidence and justification that we need to support any proposals involving alternative measures.
  2. Text added for clarity - 'This guidance also doesn’t apply to the storage of coal, materials, or wastes that are liquids.'
