COMAH – The Basics

15 June 2021

Virtual Workshop

The workshop provides a basic insight into aspects of the Control of Major Accident Hazards regulations in the UK including:
• Legislative origins
• Planning consent provisions
• Current regime landscape
• COMAH Threshold calculations
• UK enforcement activity
• Potential impacts

Why attend?
Is your site within the scope of COMAH (Control of Major Accident Hazards Regulations)? Have you assessed its potential to cause a major accident? Are you managing the site inventory to remain ‘out of scope’ of the regulations?

This workshop provides a step-by-step guide to the COMAH regime. It will start at a basic level to increase awareness of the regimes provisions and build further using examples to illustrate the obligations.

COMAH is a strict regime and requires a level of knowledge and commitment above that of general health and safety. Understanding the potential impacts is key to managing a site or remaining outside the regime. The course will cover the current implementation of COMAH 2015 as derived from an EU Directive (Seveso III)

Who should attend?
The workshop is suitable for all levels of personnel requiring a practical knowledge of COMAH – including regulatory compliance specialists. It will be useful to those specifically operating sites within this regime or those who are determining whether they want to enter for the first time.
