The new Control of Major Accident Hazards (COMAH) Regulations came into force in Great Britain on the 1st June 2015.
The main COMAH duties have stayed the same, but there are some important changes particularly on how dangerous substances are classified and information that has to be made available to the public.
For the first time, lower tier operators will have to provide public information about their site and its hazards. Both top tier (now referred to as upper tier) and lower tier operators will need to provide public information electronically and keep it up to date.
