List of OISD Standards


The Oil Industry Safety Directorate (OISD) is a regulatory and technical directorate in India. It was established in 1986 by Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas. The OISD formulates and implements safety standards for the oil industry.

The main responsibilities OISD are:

  1. Standardization;
  2. Formulation of the disaster management plan;
  3. Accident analysis;
  4. Evaluation of safety performance.

OISD has framed rules and guidelines for safe distances to be observed for various facilities in an oil installation. All the new liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) bottling plants in India are designed based on the guidelines of OISD. Further, The LPG plants can be started only after the approval of OISD. OISD has also issued guidelines for the safe operations of petrol stations and standards related to petroleum installations.
