Recording pipelines on zoning plans

For gas pipelines, the Decree on external safety for pipelines (BEVB) and the corresponding regulations apply. This decree specifies that pipelines for the transport of dangerous substances, including gas pipelines from a pressure of 16 bar, should be included in zoning plans, including the corresponding obstacle strip and a building licencing system in that strip to protect the pipe and the energy supply. The risks of high-pressure gas pipelines should be calculated using the computer programme CAROLA, which is derived from PIPE SAFE.
