SEVESO Directive Services

SEVESO Directive Services: Your Needs


Under the SEVESO Directive, industrial operators storing or processing particular inventories of hazardous chemicals/materials must notify the Health and Safety Authority (HSA). Ensuring compliance with the SEVESO Directive is complex and demanding and organisations must produce a Major Accident Prevention Policy (MAPP), undertake risk assessments and evaluate accident   plans. According to the SEVESO II Directive employers must:

  • Take all measures necessary to prevent major accidents and to limit their consequences for both man and the environment.
  • Prove to the competent authority that all necessary measures, as stated in the directive, have been taken in particular for the purposes of inspections.
