    Procedures are to include requirements that .... are disconnected = strange

    Hello.

    Procedures are to include requirements that whenever there is a break in work for the day, all hoses leading down into a tank are disconnected from the gas suppply at the distribution manifolds.

    I understand the sentence in the following way:

    Procedures are to include requirements that all hoses leading down into a tank are to be / should be disconnected from the gas suppply at the distribution manifolds, every time work is not carried out for one day.

    There are requirements for all hoses leading down into a tank to be disconnected from the gas suppply.

    The word "are to be / should be" should be used so that a clear picture can be obtained.

    Do you agree with me about the understanding of the sentence?

    I may be wrong.

    Thank you.

    You're understanding is correct. "Are to be" is more affirmative. "Should be" sounds like a suggestion.
