REA response to consultation on Control of Major Accident Hazards Regulations

A new EU directive, Seveso III, which deals with the control of major accident hazards involving dangerous substances, will be written into domestic legislation which will come into force on 1 June 2015. The Seveso III Directive is implemented in Great Britain through the Control of Major Accident Hazards (COMAH) Regulations (which is the responsibility of the HSE) and planning legislation which is the responsibility of the Department for Communities and Local Government (CLG) and the devolved administrations in Scotland and Wales.

There are references to biogas, biomethane and digestate within Seveso III and there is the possibility that expensive conditions which should relate only to large scale chemical hazards will be imposed on the AD industry. The REA has challenged this position in its response which can be found HERE.
