The National Traction Engine Trust

Code of Practice

A Code of Practice 'the Management of Traction Engines and similar Devices' is published by the Engine Owners Section. The COP has for a long time been widely accepted in the Insurance and Boiler Repair and Steam Engineering communities as a 'de facto' reference manual.

The fully revised 2007 COP includes practical advice on every aspect of engine ownership, operation and maintenance and is available for download in PDF form from this website.  Importantly Part 4 of the COP,  the Written Scheme of Examination for boilers and Part 6, detailed notes on Repairs have both been approved by the Safety Assessment Federation (SAFed).

You can view or download each part of the 2007 Code of Practice in PDF form by clicking the links below. Alternatively you can purchase a hard copy in a loose leaf folder by sending a cheque for £25 payable to the NTET to the Chairman of the Engine Owners Section.
