Consultation on proposed changes to the COMAH Regulations 2015

20 August 2021

HSE is currently carrying out a consultation exercise relating to administrative changes to the Control of Major Accident Hazards Regulations 2015 (COMAH) which are required because of the dissolution of Public Health England (PHE).

CD290 - Consultation on proposed minor administrative changes to the Control of Major Accident Hazards Regulations 2015

HSE consults stakeholders to seek their views on its proposals. It believes that public consultation provides an open and transparent approach to its decision-making.

Following consultation, HSE will make a recommendation to the Secretary of State on the best way forward.

We draw your attention to this consultation which closes at midnight on Friday 27 August.

Comments should be submitted by using an online survey. This is the most effective way for HSE to fully consider and analyse responses. Alternatively, you can download a copy of the survey (in Microsoft Word) here and email it to HSE, or

send via post to: COMAH consultation, Chemicals and Land Use Planning policy team, 2.1 Redgrave Court, Merton Road, Bootle, Merseyside, L20 7HS.
