SSG 21 - Asset Decommissioning and Disposal Publication

We are pleased to announce the completion and publication of our latest subject specific guideline - SSG 21 

The document addresses this subject under the following three sections:

• What does decommissioning and disposal mean – definitions that can be universally applied.
• Decision-making governance – controlling decisions to decommission, or dispose of assets.
• Practical application – the practical steps in undertaking decommissioning and disposal.

An overriding principle throughout the document is that unless otherwise stated, all aspects of decommissioning and disposal are contained within the scope of the Asset Management System, where the ‘Management System’ is as defined in ISO 55000. The document also makes use of the terms ‘Asset’, ‘Asset System’, and ‘Asset Portfolio’ as defined in ISO 55000. These represent the defining frameworks within which decommissioning and disposal take place.
