|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.
