OECD research paper – Ageing of Hazardous Installations

The OECD Ageing of Hazardous Installations paper presents information collected through discussions and projects undertaken by the OECD Working Group on Chemical Accidents (WGCA) relevant to ageing of hazardous installations over the 2014 to 2016 period.

This paper relies, in particular, on the results of an analysis of accidents associated with ageing of installations, on the results of a survey activity that aimed to collect information on the approaches of countries to ageing of installations, and on the conclusions of a Special Session that was organised in October 2015 by the WGCA on Ageing of Hazardous Installations. The analysis of accidents associated with ageing of installations was prepared by the Major Accident Hazards Bureau of the European Commission Joint Research Centre. The following delegations provided cases of accidents associated with ageing: Australia, France, Germany, Italy, Sweden, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom.
