SSG 21 - Asset Decommissioning and Disposal

As a critical activity within any asset management lifecycle, an understanding of the processes and application of decommissioning and disposal are crucial.

This SSG covers a comprehensive range of tools and techniques that support the decision-making, governance and practical application of decommissioning and disposal of assets at the end of their life.

An overriding principle throughout this SSG is that options and approaches to decommissioning and disposal are considered during all phases of the wider Asset Management System and are represented when defining the context within which decommissioning and disposal take place.

This guidance aligns the decommissioning and disposal process to related phases of the asset lifecycle through setting out what to consider, the controlled decision-making processes needed and the effective planning of the practical steps to undertake these activities.
