The Joint Research Centre of the European Community has organised a benchmark exercise on major hazard analysis with the aim of assessing the state of the art in risk analysis. The exercise was performed by 11 teams representing control authorities, research organisations, engineering companies and industry. As reference plant for the exercise, an existing ammonia storage plant was considered, but located in an hypothetical site. The project was subdivided into two phases. The first phase was aimed at comparing the existing approaches to risk analysis, from hazard identification up to the calculation of the individual risk contours. The objective of the second phase, based on the results of the first phase, was to identify the single components contributing to the overall difference in the results. Volume 2 contains summaries of the contributions of each individual team to the benchmark exercise, in two parts.
