Bio Products Laboratory – DSEAR and EPD Gap Analysis


Bio Products Laboratory Ltd (BPL) is a Government owned not for profit organisation which turns blood plasma in to a range of life saving products. It is committed to research and development to maintain a key position in a constantly changing market in the 21st century.


BPL operates a number of potentially explosive processes within its manufacturing process. Ensuring the safe operation of these processes falls within the ATEX/DSEAR regulations and guidance.

BPL commissioned HFL to conduct a DSEAR and EPD Gap Analysis on several manufacturing processes.


HFL conducted a DSEAR and EPD gap analysis by reviewing current processes, documentation and procedures. The subsequent report identified and prioritised the activities required to produce a compliant EPD.
HFL also advised on competency training for BPL staff to ensure the relevant legal requirements are fulfilled.


The gap analysis allowed BPL to focus on the activities necessary to enable preparation and planning for the implementation of a fully compliant plant.
