This paper discusses two activities connected with the Seveso II directive on hazardous substances: fine-tuning, or the further consideration of topics which could not be not definitively resolved in the course of agreeing the directive; and guidance, or the preparation of non-binding suggestions and interpretations in technical domains where the directive's provisions require further development. Both activities are carried out primarily in European Union technical working groups. The paper concludes with some personal conclusions about the nature of the process and its results.
