Major Accident

Legislation on Major Accidents (Seveso), Royal Decree 1254/1999 and subsequent amendments, establishes the obligation for affected industrial establishments to take the necessary measures to prevent major accidents and, in case they occur, limit their consequences.

For the verification and enforcement of these obligations the involvement of accredited testing bodies is required, which usually require competent authority to carry out inspections and evaluations of the documentation associated with the implementation of Royal Decree 1254 / 1999 and any subsequent amendments.

INERCO has a team of highly qualified inspectors accredited to a National Accreditation Entity (ENAC), with extensive experience in the evaluation of documentation for compliance with the principles established in this legislation, as well as in conducting periodic inspections under Article 19 of Royal Decree 1254/1999 relevant to all industrial sectors: Refining, Chemicals and Petrochemicals, Gas, Energy, Mining, Cement, Agriculture, Fertilizers, Steel Industry, Logistics, Pharmaceutical, etc.

Additionally, at regional level in Spain INERCO coordinates a Plan of routine inspections established by the Local ministry of Economy, Innovation, Science and Employment of Andalusia for major accidents.
