Summary

A directive for the classification of hazardous installations and for the specification of the content of the required risk assessment will be issued by the State of Sao Paulo and subsequently by the Federal Government of Brazil. A critical review of the Seveso Directive suggested the development of new criteria to improve the consistency of the specified masses with the intrinsic hazard of the substances, to include consider special physical conditions into the process that can modify the hazard, to deal with plants using many different hazardous substances, to consider the characteristics of the scenario and to specify the contents of the risk analysis and the criteria for emergency planning.
