The Seveso III Directive was implemented in the EU in 2012 to reduce the risks associated with the storage and handling of hazardous chemicals.
This Standard shows how a Safety Management System (SMS) can be set up, but does not guarantee that the laws and regulations of each individual country will be complied with. However, it does provide a good basis for logistics companies to comply with the European Seveso directive. The aim is to introduce a single standard for companies in chemical logistics. The examples should be applied to one’s own situation.
This standard has been drawn up by a team of representatives from the business community, the Dutch trade association for chemical logistics VNCW and the IFCL (International Foundation for Chemical Logistics).
