CDOIF Environmental Risk Assessments

The COMAH Regulations require operators to demonstrate that they have taken all measures necessary to prevent or mitigate the impact of Major Accidents to the Environment (MATTE).  Operators must undertake environmental risk assessments as part of their COMAH safety reports.

CDOIF was commissioned to develop guidance for the Competent Authority and Duty Holders to provide a common methodology for COMAH environmental risk assessments.  The CDOIF Guideline builds on the 'DETR 1999, Guidance on the Interpretation of Major Accident to the Environment for the Purpose of COMAH Regulations' providing a framework and screening methodology by which it can be applied by regulators and operators.

The Guideline was initially published in December 2013 and an updated v2.0 of the Guideline was published in May 2016.  It provides a screening methodology to help in determining environmental risk tolerability from an establishment, targeting resources and determining 'All Measures Necessary' with regard to COMAH Guidelines and includes:
    -   definition of the types of harm
    -   risk criteria and a framework for evaluating risks - severity/duration
    -   cost benefit analysis
    -   completing the risk assessment

This lunchtime forum will discuss the requirements of undertaking a risk assessment in accordance with the Guideline as well as provide practical insight based on ABB's experience of completing the assessments including a case study example. The forum will also highlight the Guideline updates in v2.0.
