Abstract

Within the European Union, the legislative environment mandating the management of risk arising from major accident hazards at chemical and petrochemical establishments has since 1982 been established by the Seveso Directive. This Directive has recently been replaced by the Seveso II Directive, currently being brought into application in all the Member States of the European Union and the European Economic Area.
