An independent review of HSE methodology for assessing societal risk and HSE’s respsonse

In 2005, the Interdepartmental Task Group on Societal Risk requested an independent review of HSE’s methodology forassessing societal risk. The Institute of Chemcial Engineers were comissioned to carry out the review which they completed in January 2006. Since then, the public consultation (CD212) has been carried out and in 2008 ministers agreed for HSE to work with others to include the assessment of societal risk in both the regulation of on-shore major hazard installations and in decisions on planning for development near such installations. It is now appropriate (April 2009) that this review and HSE’s response to it are made available along with other relevant reports.
