SCO (Safe Control of Operations) GAS Distribution

Safe Control of Operations 


About the Scheme

The Safe Control of Operations (SCO) scheme ensures that individuals working on the gas network are trained to do so safely by understanding gas network procedures and correct permitry.

The SCO scheme is the knowledge-based part of a Competent Person’s or Authorising Engineer’s route to network registration and is followed by the competence-based part of the overall requirement.

The introduction of IGEM/GL/6 Edition 3 has introduced an increased emphasis on risk-based management of gas safety systems and gives gas distribution companies the flexibility to develop their own gas safety procedures based on meeting the common requirements of GL/6. The SCO scheme is based around the requirements for meeting GL/6 compliance.

The SCO scheme consists of an Initial programme for newcomers to the industry and a Renewal programme for those with existing and current SCO registrations.

Converting current SCO registrations to the new SCO Scheme

  • Holding an in-date SCO 1 and 2 means an individual is eligible for SCO Renewal modules, module 1: SCO Core, module 2: PtW and module 5: FoA
  • Holding an in-date SCO 4 means an individual is eligible for SCO Renewal module 3: NRO
  • Holding an in-date SCO 5 means an individual is eligible for SCO Renewal module 4: RO

Note: where the existing registration is not in date, or if the individual wants to add an endorsement, then they will have to take the Initial programme

Eligibility for SCO Renewal modules 3 and 4 assumes an individual is holding an in-date SCO 1 and 2 as well as SCO 4/5.
