A. Jovanovic teaching upcoming course on Risk Based Inspection (RBI) in Amsterdam
News Photo Prof. Dr. Aleksandar Jovanović will be leading a MasterClass on RBI from October 22-23, 2019, in Amsterdam, Netherlands.



RBI, as an approach initially developed in and for Oil and Gas Industry has changed a lot in the year 2019. New industrial and international/European standards (such as EN 16991:2018 or new ISO standards, or the less recent API and ASME standards) have been brought into the modern practice. New tools corresponding to these documents and the overall Industry 4.0 trends have been developed, and, last but least; the application area has been broadened to areas such as power and paper industry.

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 in Europe and worldwide. Following the pre-standard CWA 15740:2008/2011, the new EN16991 is aligned with API RPs and supported by national documents such as VGB 506-S. Already mentioned in the legislation of several countries, the standard supports a more efficient and effective inspection and maintenance planning 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 standard and its present and future applicability in industry.

Goals of the workshop:
• Understand the basis for Risk Based Inspection methodology, in particular in power and process
industry
• Understand the new EN16991:2018 standard, its details and implications

Jovanović, project manager F. A. Quintero),

 the new EU standard on Risk-Based Inspection (RBI) EN16991:2018 was published on May 1, 2018!

The standard was published by the Dutch Standardization Body NEN on May 1, 2018 (see https://www.nen.nl/NEN-Shop-2/Standard/NENEN-169912018-en.htm), followed by Swedish SIS (https://www.sis.se/api/document/preview/80003807/) - other national bodies will follow shortly.

The standard continues new directions in the area of RBI, established already by the pre-standard CWA 15740:2008/2011, and is aligned with the concepts of API and will be further supported by the national documents such as VGB 506-S. The standard is already mentioned in the legislation of a number of countries and supports more efficient, effective inspection and maintenance planning in industry (power, process, other). At the same time, the standard improves risk management and, thus, improves the safety of the plants and their operation, including all aspects of improved safety, environment, and business management. The concepts in the standard have been already applied in practice in many countries and, thus, have been "combat-tested".

The standard will be presented in detail on the

EN16991:2018 Workshop - Concepts, details, applications
at premises of EnBW in Stuttgart on
October 16, 2018

"Pencil" the day of the workshop; the details about the workshop will follow in the due course. For questions or queries, please feel free to contact us (rbi@risk-technologies.com).
