BRZO scan for Seveso III compliance on hazardous substance storage


Contact us:

Comprehensive services from experts give you an overview of your BZRO status, with recommendations to ensure and achieve compliance.

The Seveso III European regulation came into effect on 1 June 2015. Later that year it was translated into the Dutch decree on Companies with Risks of Major Accidents (BRZO). Among the most important changes are new classification and threshold values for hazardous substances.

Under the new regulations, companies that use specific, dangerous substances must carry out a BRZO status check by 1 June 2016,  and you may be required to provide additional documentation to the authorities to become compliant.  So, are you ready? And what do you need to do to achieve and prove your compliance?
