Alert Cascade COMAH

Warning and Informing with Alert Cascade - the basics

With the Control of Major Accident Hazards (COMAH) Regulations 2015 coming into force on 1st June 2015 and the Requirements of the Radiation Emergency Preparedness and Public Information Regulations (REPPIR) now focusing on communicating with the Detailed Emergency Planning Zone (DEPZ) surrounding nuclear facilities, there is an increased emphasis on communicating effectively with members of the public and local businesses.
