New CHCS Training Course:
Introduction To The SEVESO / COMAH Regulations

We are delighted to announce the launch of a new CHCS training module:

  • Module 57, SEVESO / COMAH Regulations
    How to determine whether in scope of the Directive, compliance duties for lower tier sites and outline of upper tier duties

The first outing of this new course will be on 31 March 2020 in London.

This module will help you determine if you are in scope of Directive 2012/18/EU on the Control of major-accident hazards involving dangerous substances, otherwise known as the SEVESO III Directive and the UK COMAH 2015 Regulations transposing the Directive. It will also cover the main duties for lower tier establishments and outline the main duties for upper tier sites.

Module 57 is aimed at people with responsibility for SEVESO/UK COMAH-related activities, pre-COMAH sites and those organisations coming into scope. It will also appeal to organisations already in scope, providing detailed information on lower tier duties, serving as a refresher course. The Module will explain how to apply the classification rules to dangerous substance inventories to determine whether in scope. It will also cover the main duties for lower tier sites in detail, outline upper tier duties and the responsibilities of competent authorities.
