The purpose of the report is to investigate whether the measures planned after a serious accident or incident are effectively implemented at establishments subjected to act (SFS 1999:381) on measures to prevent and limit the consequences of major chemical accidents. In 1999, the EU Directive 96/82/EC on the prevention and control of major accident hazards involving dangerous substances was introduced. This directive is called the Seveso directive and is implemented in Swedish law. Establishments that hold over a certain amount of dangerous substances are classified as Seveso establishments and are subject to extensive rules and obligations. If an establishment in Sweden is classified as a Seveso establishment, it is also classified as a hazardous establishment according to the civil protection act. If an establishment is classified as a hazardous establishment, there is a reporting requirement that in the event of a major accident, it must be reported to the municipality in which the establishment operates and to the Civil Contingencies Agency (MSB). Since 2006 reporting to the MSB is done digitally via a web form and compiled in a database. Between 2006 and 2011, 176 accidents or incidents were reported into the system and this report focuses primarily on the years 2010 (16 events at Seveso establishments) and 2011 (26 events at Seveso establishments). The investigation has taken place over the telephone where establishments answered nine questions about the accident/incident reported. These responses were then compiled and the result was that: Every accident/incident generated an average of five planned preventive actions. Of these five planned preventive actions an average of four were completed by the day of the telephone interview. It also emerged during the interviews that it is desirable for the MSB to improve the digital web form. The limitations of the web form could be one reason that not all events are reported correctly. Additionally, there may be confusion as to when an accident or incident should be reported. According to current regulations, they shall be reported when considered serious. This leaves room for interpretation and might result in failing to report some accidents that should be reported and reporting some events that do not fulfill the criteria.
