Lightning and aircraft Fuelling

Company GOM states Aircraft shall not be refueled if observed lightning from a thunderstorm is within 10 miles of the place where fuel is being pumped, or, a thunderstorm is within 10 miles of the fuel loading facility. I am unable to find this information. Anyone has seen this or comment.

I'm not sure that I understand what information you are looking for. If the GOM includes the statement that you mention, what more do you need? What is more tricky sometimes is knowing how far away a cell or lightning actually is, or who will make the decision whether or not fuelling must stop.
