Start-up operations are riskier than normal, routine operations. The process needs to be planned and managed. The Pre-Start-Up Audit (PSUA) or Pre-start-up review (PSUR) is a part of the planning process for projects during which the safety and functionality of the process itself is checked to ensure that all systems should function as intended and that potential hazards have been considered and can be dealt with. This process is used in projects related to construction, reconditioning or repair of equipment and facilities designed to process hazardous substances.
