The CEFIC has issued Guidance on Safety Risk Assessment for Chemical Transport Operations.

The purpose of this document is to provide general guidance to chemical and transport companies on carrying out safety risk assessments for transport operations. This should allow the identification of transport activities with the highest potential risk towards people, infrastructure and the environment.

This in turn, should help companies choose the safest transport mode or route and allow them to implement other risk mitigation measures.


This document does not aim to provide detailed guidance on risk assessment methods.
