Under the COMAH regulations, operators of upper tier sites are required to review and update their safety report at least every 5 years or whenever a significant change occurs on site as required by regulation 10 of COMAH 2015. The revised safety report must then be submitted to the Competent Authority (CA) for assessment.
The Seveso III Directive came into force on 13th August 2012 and was implemented through COMAH 2015. Changes include the re-classification of chemicals to align them with the United Nations’ Globally Harmonised System (GHS) for the classification, labelling and packaging of chemical substances and mixtures; a greater focus on land-use planning; and the provision of information to the general public, which must be made available electronically.
Chemical and Downstream Oil Industries Forum (CDOIF) published guidance in September 2013, for determining the tolerability of environmental risk at COMAH establishments, CDOIF – Guideline Environmental Risk Tolerability for COMAH Establishments v 1.0, which has subsequently been reviewed and updated. Site operators are being encouraged to adopt this methodology within their safety report submissions.
This course explores the requirements of COMAH including the recent changes and will suggest practical approaches to compiling COMAH safety reports in line with HSE expectations.
