2018 05/03/2018 Polymer Industry Cleaning Specification

CEFIC (The European Chemical Industry Council) published their revised Guideline for the cleaning of Dry Bulk Polymer Transport Tanks into 2018  version.

This new version is available as PDF download and additional translations check download area.  

The following main changes have to be considered:

The checklist is considered an "aide memoir" and does not have to be filled out anymore, either not countersigned by the cleaner and driver. (Pages 5, 14 and 17).
The visual inspection of the hoses or equipment should not be considered as an investigation.
It was declared as a short visual inspection for obvious signs of damages
or to identify contaminants that are visible to the naked eye. (Page 14)
