The definition of Commissioning

Commissioning is the disciplined and systematic process of assuring that all sub-systems, systems and components of a constructed unit are designed, installed, tested and operated in conformance with the design intent, functional intent, and operational requirements of the owner.

The Commissioning Process includes the proof testing of design intent using static check-sheets, dynamic check-sheets and commissioning procedures to ensure compliance with design drawings, data sheets and specifications in order to achieve a smooth and safe transition from an inert state to a completely tested, clean, leak tight, operable and safe unit, in readiness for start-up and performance testing.
