COMAH Regulatory Compliance

shutterstock_2228994-copyHazRes provides COMAH Regulatory Compliance Services. The Control Of Major Accident Hazards (COMAH) Regulations 1999 came into force on 1st April 1999 and are amended by the Control Of Major Accident Hazards (Amendment) Regulations 2005 from 30th June 2005. They implement Council Directive 96/82/EC known as the Seveso II Directive, as amended by Directive 2003/105/EC and replaced the Control Of Industrial Major Accident Hazards Regulations 1984 (CIMAH).

The main aim of the regulations is to prevent, control and mitigate the effects of accidents involving chemicals that could cause serious harm to people and/or the environment. Typical types of Major Accidents Hazards (MAH) that are covered by COMAH include fires, explosions, toxic gas releases, and leaks of hazardous substances to rivers and land.
