Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


The consequences of some European industrial accidents could have been avoided if proper information had been available. To facilitate the access to information and coordinate the work of the Member States, the Commission of the European Commmunities has initiated the creation of a Community Documentation Centre on Industrial Risk (CDCIR). CDCIR will provide national authorities with more information on high risk activities in industry and the different national legislation and technical guidelines. The objective is to create a bibliographic and scientific environment, which facilitates exchange of information between the Member States on high risk industrial activities and accident reports. The documentation centre should also provide the opportunity to compare the guidelines of Member States and issue review reports comparing national practices in chosen subjects.
