COMAH Strategic Forum


This is the web community for the COMAH Strategic Forum (CSF) - the high level joint chemical industry and regulator forum working to improve major accident hazard management and raise standards across industry.

The community’s primary audience will be those who operate establishments covered by the Control of Major Accident Hazards Regulations 2015 (COMAH), but the information provided will be of interest and use to all those involved in the processing and storage of chemicals.

Here you will find information, news and reports developed by the forum and its working groups. It is made available to promote engagement and improve access to information, guidance and support for COMAH and other businesses on the control of major accident hazards involving dangerous substances.

CSFweb is fully open – you do not need to register but please follow the links below to sign up for automatic updates and news.
