In accordance with the provisions of the legislation of the Russian Federation the grounds are considered related to conducting expertise of industrial safety of the documentation for technical re-equipment of oil and gas production objects and technical devices used there.  Depending on the purpose and conditions of their use the reasonable selection will be made of the relevant expert organization and experts.
When organizing performance of industrial safety expertise at hazardous production facilities for oil and gas production the clients often incorrectly define the subject of the expertise. Instead of conducting expertise of technical devices, they propose to conduct an expertise of the documentation for their engineering change (modification) unreasonably perceived by the clients as documentation for technical re-equipment of hazardous production facility.
Registration of such conclusions by the territorial bodies of Rostechnadzor does not relieve the clients from fulfilling the established legislative requirements. Replacement of some types of expertise by others not provided for by legislation cannot serve as an assessment of conformity with the requirements of industrial safety of the object as a whole, and the technical devices used in its scope.
