COMAH: The new Seveso III Directive and GHS
HSL is to run a 1 day course on COMAH: The new Seveso III Directive and GHS.
22 October 2014
The Seveso II Directive, implemented in the UK as the
COMAH Regulations, will be replaced in 2015 by the new Seveso III
Directive. A major change will be the use of the Globally
Harmonised System (GHS) for classification of chemicals to
determine whether they are within the scope of the Directive. There
is the potential for sites to change their COMAH status (top tier,
lower tier or non-COMAH) when the new Directive is implemented,
depending on the substances and quantities held.
The course will give an overview of the requirements of the new
Directive and the timetable for implementation as revised COMAH
regulations. It will also cover the potential changes in scope and
how to determine the likely effects on a site by determining the
GHS categories of substances. The presenters have been providing
scientific advice to the UK team which negotiated Seveso III for
The course will cover:
Who should attend?
Safety managers and those responsible for compliance with the
COMAH Regulations should attend. This would include existing COMAH
top tier and lower tier sites, and also sites which are currently
outside of COMAH but may have potential to come into scope.
The course will be run at the HSL laboratory in the spa town of
Buxton. Buxton is in the heart of the Peak District and has good
links to mainline train stations and Manchester International
The cost of the course is £450 per person (includes course
notes, lunch and refreshments).
Please note the invoice option is not available within 4
weeks of the course date, or for overseas customers.
