COMAH requires operators to demonstrate that they have taken all necessary measures to prevent or mitigate the impact of major accidents to the environment (MATTE). Operators must provide environmental risk assessments as part of their COMAH safety reports. This is a new duty for operators as previous CIMAH reports only required health and safety risk assessments. The Environment Agency is responsible for assessing these environmental risk assessments and this is a new duty for the Agency.
