Workshop: Risk Based Inspections (RBI) and the new EU standard EN16991; Concepts, details, applications

Main topic: 
On May 1st, 2018 the new EN16991:2018 standard was approved. It establishes the basis for application of European standardization in the area of RBI (Risk Based Inspection) in Europe and worldwide. Following the pre-standard CWA 15740:2008/2011, the new EN16991 is aligned with API 580/581 and other standards such as the German VGB 506-S. This EN standard (or its predecessor), mentioned in the legislation of several countries, supports more efficient and effective inspection and maintenance in the industry (power, process, other). At the same time, it improves risk management and thus, safety, of the plants and their operation, including all aspects of improved environment and business management. This workshop is designed to present detailed information about the new standard and its current and future applicability in industry.

 

Goals of the workshop:

  • Understand the basis for RBI methodology, in particular in power and process industry
  • Understand the new EN16991:2018 standard, its details and implications
  • Show how the standard is practically used (including software tools)
  • Provide insights into other RBI standardization efforts such as the German VGB 506-S
February 15, 2011
Coordination and Brainstorming Meeting on "Future of standardization of Risk-Based Inspection and Maintenance in Europe, based on further development of CWA 15740:2008"

  2. Which companies/persons would like to be involved into this activity
  3. CEN TCs possibly interested in "hosting" the topic
  4. Possibility of establishing "small TC" (2-3 years lifetime, just one EN)
  5. Define the principal directions of contents updating of CWA 15740:2008 – e.g. with respect to new US, Japanese and Korean docs, and developments in countries like China
  6. Define the Operating team for the new European RBI (EN based on CWA 15740:2008)
  7. Prepare the report for the CEOC GA in May in Warsaw (if appropriate) or at some other occasion(s)

M. Löscher, European Virtual Institute for Integrated Risk Management, Germany

About the workshop

FP7 project iNTeg-Risk (www.integrisk.eu-vri.eu) is dealing with early recognition, monitoring and integrated management of emerging, new technology related risks. Over 60 organisations and more than 350 persons have committed themselves to develop a harmonised EU-answer to these emerging risks, which are considered as one of the major problems for the competitiveness of the EU innovation industry. One of the important pillars in the interdisciplinary approach of iNTeg-Risk project is the involvement of social aspects and corporate responsibility throughout the whole life cycle of new technologies covered by the project.
In this workshop, we would like to bridge the gap between different CSR-relevant groups, who might already work according to CSR-related concepts, but are not in-line with other units; like differences in comprehension and application of CSR-concepts among engineers and businessmen.
As the target group for this workshop is, apart from invited externals, the project consortium itself with persons mostly having technical background, this event (and the iNTeg-Risk project itself) is a one of the kind opportunity to address an interested and dedicated group of persons (engineers), whose work within the project can be considered as a test bed for CSR concepts and approaches, which will find their application within the project and its results. Main expected benefits for the participants are:
  • Learning from application of sustainability concepts in other sectors (engineering vs. business/financial).
  • Get in touch with experienced global players in sustainability reporting in order to elaborate appropriate concepts for New Technologies and its related emerging risks.
Foreseen participants for this workshop are project members and CSR/Sustainability responsible persons of companies and public authorities.

About the workshop

The workshop will address the issue of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) as used, or planned to be used in iNTeg-Risk Project (www.integrisk.eu-vri.eu). In the project KPIs are one of the four main cornerstones of the methodology for assessing and managing emerging risks linked to New Technologies (the other three being the IRGC Framework, UML and Basel-II-like procedure for assessing the risks). In particular, the application of KPIs for the 17 ERRAs of iNTeg-Risk (ERRAs – Emerging Risks Representative Applications) is supposed to be looked at in more detail. This should be the case both for the ERRA-specific KPIs and for the KPIs used to compare ERRAs and single risk issues within each of them.
Main concepts developed by organizations like OECD, HSE/HSL, CCPS or VCI will be discussed in the first part of the workshop. Application of these and other concepts is foreseen to be tackled in the second and third part of the workshop, where also the practical aspects of these applications, including tools and the practical view from the industry on the use of indicators will be presented and discussed.
Main expected benefits for the participants are:
  • Introduction to the KPI concepts, by their developers
  • Presentation of examples of application, both within iNTeg-Risk and outside iNTeg-Risk
  • Exchange of experiences in using KPIs both within iNTeg-Risk and in other projects/activities
Expected participants to this course are plant engineers, managers and risk experts.

About the course

The Nanosmile website www.nanosmile.org , developed in parallel of FP6 NanoSafe 2 has been available full web since June, 2008. Initially implemented as an e-learning support available internally at the Atomic Energy Commissary, Nanosmile has been gradually opened to the public at large. This website is now specifically dedicated to support:
  1. Professional training sessions in order to guarantee adoption of best practices,
  2. Institutional education program in order to make students aware to emerging risks,
  3. Public information dissemination in order to structure societal dialogue.
FP7 NanEX, NanoHouse and NanoCode projects will feed Nanosmile content and structure during 2010-13 periods. iNTeg-Risk T4.10.7 will closely connect the Nanosmile website to the iNTeg-Risk One-Stop-Shop in different possible implementations.
This course proposes a Nanosmile concept and feedback presentation. Three different modules  nanotraining, nanoeducation and nanodialogue will be structured as follows:
  1. Presentation: initial goals, implementation phase, feedback experience
  2. Generic methodological questions: discussion on the basis of IRGC, EMRF framework
  3. Specific content questions: answers will be supported by a detailed website visit

This course will give an overview about the technologies (and the providers) that fit early warning needs in risk management.
We will give an introduction to the concepts of semantic web technologies and semantic intelligences, and we will show running solutions in the sectors of nano-technologies, alternative energy, pharma product risks, and others.
Main benefits for the participants of this course are:
  • Deep insight into the value of different web sources from a risk management perspective (scientific, stakeholder, government, databases, consumer generated contents).
  • An overview of the potentials of semantic web technologies and semantic intelligence solutions and the major providers in the market.
  • An introduction how to use these technologies and sources for emerging risk management purposes practically (2 professional examples used by re-insurances).
Target participants of this workshop are project managers, Innovation- and Knowledge- Managers, governmental experts and scientific representatives.
