In recent years more problems with CUI in ethylene plants have been detected. The European Ethylene Producers Committee (EEPC) CUI Issue group collected, discussed and analyzed incidents, damages and examples of good and bad solutions from member companies. The Group discussed the content and the applicability of public documents, guidelines and rules. An exchange of experiences about procedures, methods and technical solutions executed by the member companies was carried out. All these activities lead to the creation of a document by the Issue Group, a “Roadmap to Managing CUI”, which is presented in this paper.
