Seveso status and levy

A Seveso company is a company that 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 makes a distinction between low and high threshold Seveso companies, depending on the nature and amounts of hazardous 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 posed by the company and is determined by means of a danger index method.
