Failure analysis

Warning, averting danger, providing information

As part of testing the applicability of the Hazardous Incident Ordinance, we first determine whether any requirements of the 12th Ordinance of the the Federal Pollution Control Act (12 BImSchV, StörfallV) must be met by the operator. When required, we provide you with the following services:

  • Determination and assessment of appropriate distances (distances for reducing harmful environmental effects and the effects of major accidents to a minimum) according to § 50 BImSchG
  • Elaboration of concepts (pursuant to § 8 of the Hazardous Incident Ordinance (StörfallV))
  • Elaboration of safety reports (pursuant to § 9 of the Hazardous Incident Ordinance)
  • Elaboration of risk analyses according to the HAZOP-procedures, for example
  • Calculation and assessment of incident-related pollutant releases using recognised models (VDI 3783, ProNuSs)
  • Elaboration of warning and emergency plans (pursuant to § 10 of the Hazardous Incident Ordinance)
  • Informing the public (pursuant to § 11 of the Hazardous Incident Ordinance)
