Many have argued that the PSM regulations impact small sites particularly hard. While small sites must comply with the same regulations as much larger sites, small sites are hamstrung by a lack of resources. This is particularly true for Management of Change due to the inherent complexity of MOC.
This paper focuses on the challenges of managing the MOC business process at small sites. In order to ground the study properly, the author interviewed representatives from small sites to obtain their first-hand lived experiences.
Different ways of addressing MOC at small sites are reviewed, as well as a discussion of possible electronic MOC approaches that are within a small site’s ability to support.
