|Abstract:||The European Directive 96/82/EC; “Seveso II”; required companies to quantify the impact caused by a major accident. However; due to new knowledge about dangerous substances and because of severe accidents involving dangerous products (Baia Mare; Romania and Donana; Estonia); it was felt necessary to improve the Seveso II legislation.|
Through the Directive; 2003/105/EC; more detailed plans were introduced as well as information needed to assess the potential damage caused by major accidents involving explosives. In fact; the new directive proposes a drastic reduction of the quantities of dangerous substances allowed; new and more detailed information both on the structure and on the surrounding areas and more specific and focused controls by competent authorities.
In this article; algorithms and procedures are given to asses danger; risk and total impact after 5 years of practice and confrontation with fire departments and local environmental authorities. The procedure is presented through the following categories:
Furthermore; practical cases are discussed.
