What are the reference books for KAS

This textbook describes the basics of the legal framework for plant safety. This is supplemented by considerations of the recommendations of the Plant Safety Commission (KAS) of the Federal Minister for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) as well as general safety considerations. With regard to the development of safety technology, the authors present requirements for plant safety as part of the comprehensive law of technology - this work provides the necessary background information for this. The possibilities for improving plant safety and changing the legal situation are also carefully discussed.

This book is a reference and reference work for all those who have to do with process safety. It is particularly recommended for technicians and engineers who want to familiarize themselves with the basic structures and working methods of safety-related systems and who need to know the relevant regulations.
