Abstract

The report describes a study on emergency planning and response provisions for accidents in Belgium and Luxembourg involving dangerous substances either in fixed installations subjected to the requirements of the Seveso Directive or during transportation of dangerous chemical substances. The first part of the study is a comprehensive review of the framework of emergency planning and response. The second part focuses on relevant accidents. Fixed installations and transport accidents have been selected to extract lessons on emergency preparedness and response. This report continues the series of publication of similar studies performed for other European Union (EU) countries with the objective of improving dissemination of information for a common learning process.
