Control of Major Accident Hazard (COMAH) Regulations 2015
‘COMAH’ Regulations were first introduced in Great Britain in 1999, replacing the Control of Industrial Major Accident Hazards Regulations 1984 (COMAH). COMAH 1999 have since been superseded by COMAH 2015.
COMAH Regulations are designed to fulfil two key functions:
• prevent major incidents involving dangerous substances
• limit the consequences to people and the environment of any that could occur
