EEMUA Publication 238 provides a systematic risk-based approach to raise awareness and criticality of civil infrastructure, and defines a suitable method to manage civil infrastructure assets.

EEMUA 238 details how a systematic civil and structural facilities management process based on inspection, asset planning, assigning of roles and responsibilities, determination of asset criticality and conducting risk evaluations, allows civil and structural facilities to be robustly managed. The following areas are covered:

• Guidance on likelihood of failure of specific civil and structural infrastructure types.
• Guidance on classification of detected defects.
• Detailed guidance on degradation mechanisms and consequences for structural integrity.
• Guidance on inspection criteria.
• Guidance on common requirements for risk assessment.

EEMUA 238 emphasises that proper management of civil infrastructure assets is as important as management of all other assets, equipment and components of an industrial plant.
