Seveso III Directive To Be Enacted 1st June 2015

May 13, 2015

That date of the 1st of June 2015 is fast approaching and again I must endeavor to keep you informed regarding the importance of ensuring our clients are compliant with the SEVESO III Directive.
As previously discussed, from that date it is the responsibility of the operator to ensure that you are compliant. The following are the main points of action, which must be addressed.

  • The Competent Authority must be notified.
  • A Major Accident Prevention Plan or Safety Report. Must be submitted.
  • All necessary measures must be taken to prevent major accidents.
  • All necessary measures must be taken to limit the consequences of a major accident for Humans and the Environment.
  • Information must be made available to all persons liable to be affected by a major accident.
  • The site operator must be in a position to prove to the competent authority at any time that:
  • Major accident hazards have been identified.
  • Appropriate safety measures have been adopted.
  • Persons working on the site have been provided with information, training and equipment to ensure their safety.

The responsibility for ensuring compliance has firmly been placed in the hands of the Site operator. This is why it is so important to have taken all the necessary steps prior to June 1st.
