Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


In January 1989 the Commission of the European Communities set up a Community Documentation Centre on Industrial Risk (CDCIR). The objective of CDCIR is to create a bibliographic and scientific environment which facilitates the exchange of information between member states on the control of major hazardous industrial activities, and to gain maximum knowledge from the common European effort towards industrial safety. The CDCIR contains relevant information on the national approaches to the implementation of the EEC Directive on Major Hazards and technical guidelines concerning the industrial activities covered by this Directive. Further accident reports are also collected. Many of the documents are not easily found elsewhere, as they are issued by government sources or are specific to the Directive. A bulletin containing summaries of the new documents in CDCIR is issued twice a year, and reviews are presented of specific subjects.
