Abstract An introduction setting out the purpose of this analysis and its place in a safety study is followed by definitions and chapters on: programming safety studies; planning and organisation of deviation analysis; information required concerning the production process and plant; analysis method (detection of deviations and their causes, use of guide words such as NOT, NO, MORE, LESS, etc.). Appended: 3 examples (in English) showing the application of this method to a continuous production plant, to a batch production plant and to a sterilisation autoclave. Each example gives a description of the process, illustrated by the corresponding flowsheet or plan, with a list of possible deviations shown in tabular form with the corresponding guide words, possible causes, consequences and action required.
