Abstract This code of practice specifies requirements for the protection of workers installing and using beverage dispensers which operate with or without pressure. Addressed are the design, location, installation, commissioning, use, maintenance and cleaning of beverage dispensers as well as the safe storage and handling of pressure vessels for the supply of nitrogen, CO2 or a N2/CO2 mixture to beverage dispensers that operate with pressure. Safety testing before the equipment is put into operation is also addressed and it is stressed that the tests need to be repeated at least every two years.
