SEVESO II Directive

Verification of Hazardous Substances to Prevent Major Accidents

Portuguese Decree-Law No. 150/2015 of 5th August transposes Directive 2012/18/UE into national law and establishes a regime to prevent and control serious accidents involving hazardous substances and to limit their consequences for human health and the environment.

This document applies to all establishments where specific hazardous substances can be found, in quantities which are equal to or greater than those specified in Annex I of the document. This Decree-Law covers hazardous substances in parts 1 and 2 of the same annex.

It revokes Decree-Law No. 254/2007 of 12th July, amended by Decree-Law No. 42/2014, and is the main amendment introduced to adapt annex I – which predicts the categories of hazardous substances – to the classification system for substances and mixtures defined by Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008, by the European Parliament and the Council, of 16th December 2008 (CLP).
