This paper describes the arrangements being made in the UK to implement the Control of Major Accident Hazards Involving Dangerous Substances Directive (Seveso II) (96/82/EEC).
It starts by describing briefly the arrangements for making the regulations to give legal effect to the Directive.
It then goes on to describe the practical arrangements which are being made to ensure that the new regulations will be enforced effectively and that the principles on which enforcement is based (consistency, proportionality, targeting and transparency) will apply.
The paper describes major projects dealing with safety report assessment and the development of an inspection strategy.
It also describes the liaison arrangements being drawn up between the various enforcing authorities and the internal reorganisation recently carried out by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) : the enforcing authority for the current Seveso Directive.
