The Institute of Petroleum commissioned this report to address concern over the occurrence of a number of electrostatic ignition incidents associated with the loading of low sulphur diesel, a topic not addressed originally in the IP Model Code of Safe Practice Part 21: Guidelines for the control of hazards arising from static electricity, published in 1998.The published report provides a record of the research carried out, methods and assumptions to aid reference and also provides a starting point for any work that may be undertaken in the future. The results will also be published in a second edition of the IP Model Code of Safe Practice Part 21.
