This work was undertaken considering the suggestion coming from the European Commission concerning the risks of remarkable accidents connected with using dangerous substances and the way of limiting these risks. The general orientation of the suggestion is concerned with the opportunity of popularizing concepts like security and risk, broadening the capacity of taking decisions related to them. Education and information should be taken into account and sufficiently applied in order to reach such objectives. Local Authorities should be involved in the process. The present work compares the criteria applied by Member States of the European Union. The criteria resulted to be different from each other, because of cultural, geographical, historical, economical and social reasons.
