Plastics companies in the European Union which store potentially dangerous chemicals on their premises will have to abide by tougher management standards to prevent industrial accidents by 2015…

Tightening rules already in place under the 1997 Seveso II directive, the new law will also force EU member states to publish information on the internet about the location of plants covered by the directive and on how the public should react in a chemical accident emergency. It protects protestors’ rights to launch court challenges to planning decisions on the siting of such plants.
