Join experts, authorities, consultants, HSE managers and environmental specialists, title holders and companies from the oil and gas industry in a conference that will help organizations understand the requirements and the pathways to avoid Environmental Hazards.
In June 2016 the Offshore Safety Directive Regulations were approved by the Romanian Parliament, implementing the requirements of EU Directive 2013/30/EU. The Directive aims to minimize the risk of accidents and limit their consequences for offshore oil and gas operations. The translation of the Offshore Safety Directive (Directive 2013/30/EU) into national law requires Romania to put in place a regulatory framework to help prevent accidents as well as to respond promptly and efficiently in case such accidents occur in an offshore oil or gas installation.
Considering the very high rate of industrialisation in the European Union the Seveso Directive has contributed to achieving a low frequency of major accidents. The Directive is widely considered as a benchmark for industrial accident policy and has been a role model for legislation in many countries worldwide. Major industrial accidents involving dangerous chemicals pose a significant threat to humans and the environment.
To minimise the associated risks, measures are necessary to prevent major accidents and to ensure appropriate preparedness and response should such accidents nevertheless happen. An outline of Seveso III Directive changes will be presented with transposition aspects to local legislation.
