Abstract

This collection of papers represents the Proceedings of a seminar, on Chemical Risks in Ports and Marshalling Yards, held in May 1996 at the Port of Leghorn/Livorno in Italy. This workshop originated from a request from the Member States to the Commission to study the prevention of risks of major accidents connected with ports and marshalling yards, the control of these hazards being a major issue during debate on the Seveso II Directive within the Council. The principal aims of the workshop were:

- To further analyse the reasons prompting the statement for the Council minutes;
- To promote discussion between all interested parties;
- To develop a common understanding of where control measures arising from different origins (eg Seveso and transport legislation) can be considered as broadly equivalent;
- To further analyse the remaining areas, if any, where a broad equivalence cannot be found.
