Propuesta de una nueva directiva Seveso

Proposal for a new Directive

The new Seveso III Directive proposal is under negotiation; a report outlining the likely impact on COMAH sites of possible changes is now available.

On 21 December 2010 the European Commission adopted a proposal for a new Directive on the control of major-accident hazards involving dangerous substances that would replace the Seveso II Directive by 1 June 2015.

The main aim of the proposal is to address the consequences to the regulation of major-accident hazard sites from changes to EU legislation on the classification, labelling and packaging of chemical substances and mixtures .

The Commission has also taken this opportunity to review the need for other changes to the Directive. It proposes no fundamental changes but aims to strengthen a number of areas such as those relating to public access to information and standards of inspection.

The Commission has also published an impact assessment of the proposals .
