A Seveso company is a company that is falls under the Seveso III Directive, and therefore also under the stipulations of the Cooperation Agreement. In these companies, there are possible risks of major accidents occurring.
The legislation distinguishes low and high threshold Seveso companies, depending on the nature and amounts of dangerous substances that may be present in the company.
Apart from the obligation to draw up a safety report (OVR and SWA-VR), high threshold companies must pay an annual levy. The levy depends on the potential dangers of the company and is determined by means of a danger index method.
