SMS versus MAPP




Upper tier: MAPP + SMS, lower tier MAPP only
MAPP is not a „small“ or „reduced“ SMS – it is a different
document with different aims and formal requirements
For upper tier establishments: SMS - in accordance with Annex
III – is one of the means by which the operator has to
demonstrate that a MAPP has been properly implemented.
For lower-tier establishments, the obligation to implement the
MAPP may be fulfilled by other … and management systems,
proportionate to major-accident hazards, taking into account
the principles set out in Annex III.
Every operator has to have a management system;
upper tier a SMS, lower tier at least „some“ management
system. Each system has to be in accordance with Annex III.
Each system has to be proportionate to the major-accident
hazards.
Major Accident Prevention Policy

Operator must establish a written policy (may not exceed 3-4
pages)







setting out overall aims and principles
with respect to the prevention and
control of major accidents
ensuring a high level of protection
for man and the environment
Operator must make MAPP available to the
CA’s for the purposes of inspection and control
No decision on the quality and content of the MAPP by the
authority required
MAPP describes the overall aims, not the actually measures
taken
MAPP is valid for the whole corporation; no direct link to the
particular establishment
MAPP is not a “Mini Safety-Report”

Demonstration of transposition of the MAPP
Content and issues to be addressed laid down in
Annex III of the Directive
Not part of the SR, only a reference is sufficient
Must have clear relations to the particular
establishment (persons in charge, operating
procedures, ...)
Inspection of SMS: One aim is to scrutinize /
verifiy if the management loops exist (plan – do
– check – act)
•
•
Using check-list for interviews showed to be very useful
In most cases it is useful to split technical inspection
from SMS-inspection



Available on the Internet
Sent to the operator in advance for preparation and “pre-filling out”
Checklists can be used as a guideline for establishing an appropriate
MAPP/SMS
In the recent Twinning-Project a checklist was developed as a tool for Serbian
inspectors covering MAPP, SMS and some selected technical issues
